Photographer Matika Wilbur On Documenting Native America
Photographer Matika Wilbur is a member of the Tulalip Tribe raised on the Swinomish Reservation. Her work explores themes of Native American identity and cultural duality, and has appeared in the Royal British Columbia Museum of Fine Arts, The Nantes Museum of Fine Arts in France, the Seattle Art Museum and the Burke Museum. She joins us to talk about her new project to photograph Native Americans from all 562 tribes in the United States.
Plus, we get analysis of the latest election results from pollster and UW political science professor Matt Barreto, we look at how state legislators fared in Olympia with AP's Chris Grygiel, we discuss the legacy of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Elliott Carter with the Seattle Symphony's Simon Woods and KUOW's Marcie Sillman talks with award-winning cartoonist Ellen Forney about her new graphic memoir, “Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michaelangelo and Me."
