Josué Rivas (Mexica/Otomi) is an award-winning indigenous documentary photographer, cinematographer, and film director specialized in working on stories that challenge the mainstream narrative about indigenous peoples. His work aims to create awareness about issues affecting native communities across Turtle Island and to amplify the voices of those in the shadows of our society. He is a 2017 Magnum Foundation Photography and Social Justice Fellow and founder of the Standing Strong Project.

His work has appeared in publications including The New York Times, The Guardian and Rolling Stone. He is available for assignments, film projects and gallery shows. 

Josué will be sharing images from the Standing Strong Project and discussing his experience chronicling resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline.
