Indigenous intelligence emerges from a space within us that is informed and governed by our ethical relationships and practices; it is lived by understanding our place and responsibilities within creation. The urgency for Indigenous intelligence today, as in the days of our ancestors, demands that we think analytically and critically about our present struggles and challenges.
emergence, is a photo series that focuses on the existing presence of Indigenous intelligence within our nations. It’s about looking inward and facing ourselves. It’s about empowering and lifting each other up.
emergence is an ongoing open call for sessions to be photographed that considers the questions: What does Indigenous intelligence look like? How is Indigenous intelligence actualized within my nation, my community, my family?
