November 12: Matika Wilbur Project 562 – Student Center Ballroom   7:30pm

Last December Matika Wilbur sold everything in her Seattle apartment, packed a few essentials into her war pony, and hit the open road embarking on an adventure to photograph citizens of each federally recognized tribe in the United States. In creating “Project 562” she creatively addresses and remedies historical inaccuracies, stereotypical representations, and the absence of Native American images and voices in mass media and the national consciousness. Come hear the incredible stories she’s collected and the art of this huge project.

Project 562 will also be on display at the Archeology museum (is this right?)
