First Nation Photographer

Melody Charlie, known as @firstnationphotographer is a storyteller, truth-teller and activist. For many of us (settlers), there is a massive gap in understanding or empathy about the legacy colonialism has had on Indigenous people — and the effects of present-day institutional racism. For Melody, her work as a photographer documenting her community balances a fine line between contemporary imagery and traditional moments. But she hopes this will serve to uplift her community while changing mainstream narratives.
