Natural Wanderment Exhibit, November through mid-December 2019 and January 2020
Project 562 is a photography project by Matika Wilbur which is dedicated to photographing members of over 562 federally recognized tribes. This collection is an unparalleled collection of oral histories and images to represent the contemporary presence of Native Americans in society.
This collaboration is led by undergraduate senior Will Paisley on behalf of the Native American Cultural Center. Support from the Stanford American Indian Organization, Art and Art History, Associate Vice President for Campus Engagement, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, Vice Provost for the Arts, and the Associate Vice Provost for Inclusion, Community, and Integrative Learning has made this project a reality.
After consulting with the Project 562 team, Will is bringing this exhibition to campus for an exhibition of 3 monthsbeginning during Native American Heritage Month in November and ending on January 30. Although the Stanford Native community has annually done programming for Native American Heritage Month, it has had sparse engagement with the rest of the campus community. The dream of this project is to provide a forum for exhibition and engagement of contemporary indigenous experience for the larger Stanford Community.
