Matika’s presentations, through speaking engagements and exhibition, provide remarkable insights into contemporary Native American life, driving the conversation forward to encourage U.S. citizens to evolve beyond the appropriation and neglect of indigenous images and traditions through a new model of awareness, with honest photographic representation and direct narratives of America's First Peoples.

Changing The Way We See Native Americans:
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. In 2013 Matika Wilbur took on a project of massive scope: to photograph members of each Federally recognized tribe in the United States. My dream, Wilbur says, is that our children are given images that are more useful, truthful, and beautiful.
