A Native writer and an Italian photographer joined together for The Red Road Project.

Danielle SeeWalker, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, and Carlotta Cardana traveled to tribal communities in North Dakota, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Carolina and South Carolina in 2014 and 2015. They shot photos and learned what it's like to live in Indian Country today.

SeeWalker and Cardana are going to hit the road again later this year, The Washington Post reported. They are planning to visit tribal communities in California in November and December.

In a similar but more expansive project, Matika Wilbur (Tulalip / Swinomish) is still making her way through Indian County to document every federally recognized tribe in the United States.
