Today’s guest is Tailyr Irvine, a Salish and Kootenai photo journalist from the Flathead Indian Reservation. She is a National Geographic Explorer and her work has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, ESPN, CNN and the Smithsonian, among other prominent outlets. Tailyr is especially interested in representing the diversity within Native America and complex issues facing tribal communities. In our conversation, we frame up just a few of the many incredible projects and series in her portfolio. From co-founding Indigenous Photograph, to her Blood Quantum project and participation in We, Women, Tailyr documents essential stories that help us all better understand Montana and our country at large.
