FROM THE ROAD

Into California

Into California

Before I began fundraising for this project, I asked the creator to guide this journey and have it be as it is supposed to be. And so it is unfolding- First with your generosity to fund this project, and now with people's willingness to share their story. And what an Adventure! Previously, I recognized the need and importance of Indians telling their own story- and now, after only one month on the road, I have come to realize that the stories being shared will help to shift our collective consciousness. People want to be heard. I can't say it enough, I am so grateful to be a part of this experience....

Here are a few of my favorite photos so far.....
