I used license plates to investigate the indigenous histories of each of the 50 U.S. states. I chose this medium for investigation because license plates are an overt marker of travel and migration. By redesigning the nation’s license plates, I was able to reflect the indigenous makeup of the land before native populations were forced to move and leave their homes. I have found that there are a few native nations that have smaller subsets and tribes, and those have been reflected in the patterns on the plates based on their location in the US. My final product is a 50 license plate series and a guide on how to read and interpret each one of them.
