Matika Wilbur is a photographer and social documentarian from the Swinomish and Tulalip Tribes of the Pacific Northwest. She is the founder of Project 562, a multi-year national photo and narrative undertaking to document contemporary Indian identity.

For three years, Wilbur drove more than a quarter million miles from Alaska to the Southwest, Louisiana to Maine, to meet and photograph diverse peoples of the 562 federally recognized Nations of Indigenous Americans. Wilbur graduated from the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara and also trained at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography. She began her portrait work with Coast Salish elders in We Are One People. Her other projects include We Emerge on the complexity of contemporary Native American identity, and a one-person exhibition Save the Indian, Kill the Man at The Seattle Art Museum.
