Honour and Hope: A Native Veterans Project
I was invited by community members to participate in this documentary project and the images were made using a co-creation approach. This gallery includes a selection of photographs documenting the work we have done for this project so far.
"The purpose of this project is to document, gather, honour and share the stories of those who served, the ones that have left us and those who are still here. This is the beginning of a journey for us, a journey into the past and a look at the present, so that our future may never forget. The project does not intend to honour the act of war. The project honours the warriors who have acted as protectors of their land and their people; warriors who in spite of their sacrifice, have been largely ignored and neglected by a government that has not recognized them with the respect they deserve and whose stories are vastly underrepresented."
