Popular historical depictions by early colonial photographers have fixed in time ideas about Native American life.

In this talk we will see how Native American photographers, from Horace Poolaw in the 1920s to contemporary fine artists such as Cara Romero, break free from romanticised and colonial stereotyping.

They create modern narratives from within tribal communities, where native people hold the cameras and present themselves as empowered, complex and contemporary individuals.

Speaker: Joanne Prince, Rainmaker Gallery
