“As I photograph these sites, I wonder how much more culturally rich our nation would be if the Santee, Cherokee, Creek, Potawatomi, Anishinabek and other nations were not forcibly removed from their ancestral lands,” said Gómez. “Through photography, we can learn more about our nation and how to improve it by remembering the darkest parts of our past rather than by only celebrating our accomplishments.”
