Indigenous Peoples Day
Today we celebrate and honor Native Americans and commemorate their histories and cultures. President Joe Biden was the first U.S. President to formally recognize the holiday, by signing a presidential proclamation.
Allow me to suggest two glorious ways to celebrate without going anywhere but online.
Enjoy photographer, Matika Lorraine Wilbur’s photo collection, Project 562, online. Matika visited over 300 sovereign nations requiring her to travel to 40 states. The photos are the fruit of her tremendous labor and creativity. The book will be published next year. Check out some of her photos online.
Matika is a member of the Swinomish and Tulalip tribes of Washington state. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/other/a-native-american-photographer-took-powerful-portraits-of-members-of-every-tribe-across-the-us/ss-AARaYS6?ocid=msedgdhp&pc=U531&cvid=c92462fe434b45e7a5a7fbbdfd63c692#image=6
