It's time for the 2021 Indigenous Photograph Year in Pictures! Today we’re showing work from our member @jeremynative. The Rise series reflects upon the inherent fear that, one day, oppressed groups may rise and defend themselves. As an Indigenous tribal member who has observed the aftermath of colonization and followed my curiosity in the story of survival, especially as a federally recognize tribe east of the Mississippi, Rise approaches the concept of a future Native American uprising from a complicated perspective of military and land deed neutrality, cultural assimilation, and as a people hiding in plain sight.With the rise of the zombie motif in popular culture, the zombie may be interpreted as the great celebratory enemy, replacing the American Indian. Thus, Rise appropriates the aesthetic and concept of zombie apocalypse by replacing the gory zombie figure with the American Indian, whose simple presence causes terror.Click in the link in our bio to see the entire Year in Pictures. #indigenousphotographReposted from @ndigenousphoto
