Photographer Jody Marie Read is hoping to travel through Canada and visit citizens from all First Nations to document their story, celebrate and hopefully educate others about each one's unique heritage. She said she was inspired after seeing Matika Wilbur's Project 562.
From her Kickstarter page:
“My focus will be on Elders, Woman and Children…when all is said and done, I will later showcase my journey through images and books during the 150th Anniversary of Canada.
Why these three groups? Elders as they teach traditions, & paved the path, Woman (mothers) as we are the glue, the foundation…and children because they are our future, our motivation.
I plan to take 2 years to complete this mission, at the end of those two years I will begin compiling the images and stories. In hopes to have an exhibition, in the form of an image celebration in 2017.”
So if you feel like helping “A Journey Through The Shadows of My Past”, a photographer's journey to travel Canada and photograph Aboriginal peoples of Canada, you can visit the Kickstarter page for more information.
