Our voices are amplified in November but make sure to listen and include Indigenous people after the month ends too. I think this month is an excellent time to begin your Indigenous education but if your learning starts and stops in November then it is pointless

My work focuses on deeply sensitive issues and there are times where I take multiple trips to make sure the folks I photograph know my intentions and trust me before I begin photographing. Given the extractive history of our industry, trust is key in my storytelling

A2: What I wish people knew about my work is how much time is spent on a project before I even pick up my camera. The amount of research, calls and visits it takes to make the connections you see in the photo. It's an extensive process

I want to be one of the people telling these stories because I care about the way my community is represented and I want to do its stories justice

Becoming a photojournalist was my way of educating the public to dismantle stereotypes and ignorance that surrounded me throughout my lifetime. The stories I tell today are the stories that surround me, those that affect me and my family

When I left the reservation to attend college I discovered what it truly felt like to be a minority in a country that forgets Native Americans exist. It forced me into the position of choosing whether to dispel ignorance or sit in silence

A1: Growing up on the reservation, I realized the way I was raised and the beauty and nuance of my community was in stark contrast to how it was often represented in mainstream media
