Indigenous Peoples Day – Los Angeles

This is my new photography project #RepresentYourTribalNation to commemorate #IndigenousPeoplesDay in Los Angeles.  I want a larger audience to see us as contemporary natives in the city, but also see our tribal flags and the diversity that exists within a city like Los Angeles.

It wasn’t until I left the Navajo Reservation that I understood my purpose as a Navajo storyteller.

Leaving was the beginning, but eventually I came to understand that it wasn’t enough. I needed to go back to school. This may seem obvious, but to me it wasn’t. Higher education was never a value instilled in me—my parents only told me to find a job and not depend on others.
