Please join photographer Matika Wilbur for an opening reception for her exhibition, Seeds of Culture: The Portraits and Stories of Native American Women, in the Johnson-Kulukundis Family Gallery in Byerly Hall at the Radcliffe Institute.

Wilbur, a photographer from the Tulalip and Swinomish tribes (Washington), is the only Native American photographer and social documentarian to be welcomed into each of the 562+ Native American sovereign territories in the United States. In this exhibition, Wilbur's striking photographs, written narratives, and audio interviews provide insights into contemporary Native American women. 

The artist will give remarks in the Knafel Center, followed by a gathering in the exhibition space, with the Harvard University Native American Program (HUNAP), Radcliffe fellows, Harvard faculty and staff, members of the arts community at Harvard, and beyond.

The event is open to the public and provides a chance to see the new exhibition and meet the artist.
