The ONWARD Project amplifies Native voices to inspire new understandings of history and place in the American Southwest. We tell the stories of the largest historic research program in the region and interrogate historic implications through art, technology and diverse perspectives.

In this second Graphic Narrative, we focus on Ray Garner, a young Expedition filmmaker, who carefully documented his days in journals throughout his time on the 1937 Expedition.
