In the last week, our little photography book project has gotten national press coverage from two high-profile media outlets: Indian Country Today Media Network and the Huffington Post! Experienced Indian Country reporter Stephanie Woodard wrote the original piece for ICTMN and then crafted a slightly repackaged version for the HuffPo.
We're deeply grateful to Stephanie and her editors at both fine publications for their support. Ours is the very definition of a grassroots project; we're trying to do as much as we can with limited resources, and we're relying on our supporters across the country to help us get the word out.
So check out the articles at the links provided above, and keep checking back with us to learn more about our progress as we sink our teeth into the work ahead. Our next trip to Cheyenne River is scheduled for March 8-18; not only will our photographers be gathering late winter / early spring images for the book project, they are volunteering their time as fashion photographers for the Cheyenne River Youth Project's annual Passion for Fashion event! We'll also be hosting the first of several writing workshops for the young people who will be contributing their work to the book. Exciting stuff!
