November is American Indian Heritage month. Did you know that there are at least 562 federally recognized tribal nations in the U.S.?
Matika Wilbur is attempting to photograph every one. Wilbur, of the Swinomish and Tulalip in Washington State, sold everything she owns to travel the nation taking portraits of her people. She calls the series Project 562 and aims to debunk myths about American Indian culture. “I’m not a Halloween costume. I hope to encourage a new conversation of sharing and to help us move beyond the stereotypes.”
"We are still here," she says. "We remain."

Wow! The cover of my book Redefining Realness, available for pre-order now. Here’s 7 easy ways you can support my baby!
1. Pre-order your copy on Amazon, B&N or iBooks. Pre-order sales are vital to a first-time author like me. It shows my publisher and major booksellers that there are readers who believe in Redefining Realness (the first popular press-backed books about the experiences of a young trans woman of color) and its empowering message of authenticity, self-determination and love.
2. One of my all-time favorite gifts is a good story. Recommend Redefining Realness and/or pre-order a copy of the book for someone you know will read it and love it. Storysharing is the gift the continues to give.
