“I hope to see the people of all nations and races begin to stand together…to save the world [and] that our future generations are given an opportunity to live without fear.”– Tashina Jean Tahdooahnippah, El Reno, Oklahoma

About the Photographer

Will Wilson (b. 1969, U.S., Navajo) Living in Navajo Nation during my formative years has shaped the way I see myself as an Indigenous American and how I represent Native Americans through art. My work is an allegorical investigation of the extraordinary rapid transformation of the Indigenous lifeways, the dis-ease it has caused, and the strategy of responses that enable cultural survival. These responses—rather than the old paradigm of assimilation—can be the basis for a re-imagined vision of who we are as Native people.
