We the People: public art for the inauguration and beyond

I’m excited to be a part of this incredible project, WE THE PEOPLE, launched by the Amplifier Foundation.

“Eight years ago, the artist Shepard Fairey made the iconic image that captured a period of HOPE in America. Today we are in a very different moment, one that requires new images that reject the hate, fear, and open racism that were normalized during the 2016 presidential campaign. So on Inauguration Day, We the People will flood Washington, DC with NEW symbols of hope.”

You can learn more about the project on the Kickstarter Page.

One of my photos from my time reporting for Indigenous Rising Media at Standing Rock were selected by LA based Chicano/Native artist, Ernesto Yerena.

The image is of Helen “Granny” Redfeather.

“I’m a Lakota. I’m a freedom fighter. That’s me. I’ve got history. I come from a warrior family that protect the people…I’m a warrior. I will fight for my grandkids till I leave this world.”
