A Space for Writers of the World
I took this photo of my dad, Jess Matt as he was looking over the land where he raises cattle in Bridger, MT. He is what people like to call a “step-father”. He grew up rodeoing with my uncles, my mom’s brothers, and they started dating when he was 22 and she was 35. My mom had four children, my little brother was just 2, none of us share blood relation with him. They’ve been together for 18 years now. He is Blackfeet and Cherokee from Cut Bank, MT.
Sierra Fredricksen is an enrolled member of the Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana and grew up near Red Lodge, Montana. She graduated in June of this year from the University of Denver with her Masters of Art in English, Literary Studies and plans to go back to school to get her doctorate in the fall of 2015. She’s always been interested in visual narratives and believe that drives her love of photography.
