Emerging Native American Leaders of Portland

This portrait project was made possible with a project grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council (RACC).  It features the images and stories of some of the many emerging Native American leaders in Portland, Oregon.   One of the goals was to photograph the younger generations of this “invisible” population.  Native Americans make up a significant part of the population in Portland but are often times not recognized as who they are by the greater population.  This project was displayed at City Hall in November 2013 in honor of Native American Heritage Month.
