Launched in 2011, Paper Rocket Productions serves over five hundred tribes across North America. Combining the art of storytelling with the art of filmmaking, they capture stories that are enriched with history and holistic principles.

Founders, Jake Hoyungowa and Deidra Peaches, utilize their unique skill set to preserve the voices of the past, to teach the future. Paper Rocket Productions strives to motivate young artists from Native communities to pick up their cameras, pick up their scripts and tell their stories.

Matika Wilbur, one of the Pacific Northwest’s leading photographers, has exhibited extensively in regional, national, and international venues such as the Seattle Art Museum, the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, The Tacoma Art Museum, the Royal British Columbia Museum of Fine Arts, and the Nantes Museum of Fine Arts in France. She studied photography at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Montana and received a bachelor’s degree from Brooks Institute of Photography in California. Her work led her to becoming a certified teacher at Tulalip Heritage High School, providing inspiration for the youth of her own indigenous community. 

Matika, a Native American woman of the Swinomish and Tulalip Tribes (Washington), is unique as an artist and social documentarian in Indian Country- The insight, depth, and passion with which she explores the contemporary Native identity and experience are communicated through the impeccable artistry of each of her silver gelating photographs.
