Happy indigenous peoples day! my name is @tailyrirvine
and i am a member of the salish and kootenai tribes in montana. i am taking over for the week! it’s a happy coincidence that i started on indigenous peoples day because this week i’ll be sharing various photos from indian country. the goal with my work is to shine a light on contemporary native america that is often missing from the media. i hope this will be as fun for you as it is for me!
louis mcdonald rests his hand on the medicine tree during the salish tribe's annual trip. the medicine tree is located off the flathead reservation in the salish's aboriginal homeland. the tree is part of the salish's creation story and every year members of the tribe return to it to pray. #nativeamerica #indiancountry #indigenouspeoplesday #indigenoustraditions #womenphotograph
