“The Hopi image maker Victor Masayesva sees in photography “a philosophical sketching that makes it possible to define and then to understand our ignorance. Photography reveals to me how it is that life and death can be so indissolubly one; it reveals the falseness of maintaining these opposites separate. Photography is an affirmation of opposites. The negative contains the positive.” It is in this Indigenous dialectic, where the photograph reveals both positive and negative, truth and fiction, mythology and fact, presence and absence, dreams and reality.” Dylan Miner (Michief), Makataimeshekiakiak, Settler Colonialism, and the Specter of Indigenous Liberation
