She Dances for our Stolen Sisters

Acrylic on Canvas

Although not overly common, women have always been a part of warrior culture, historically. In modern
times this has shifted, and women have taken the lead as warriors, through land defense and through
protecting and finding justice for our stolen sisters against the missing and murdered indigenous women
and girls epidemic. As mothers, women are the knowledge keepers and the ones who have the most
responsibility to pass on cultural traditions and ways. While facing genocidal fallout, the reclamation and
resilience of culture is one of the most vital acts of resistance. Where bows and arrows were once used to
defend the people, now songs, stories, ceremonies, and dances have taken over. All across Turtle Island
young girls and old women and mothers can be found dancing in the streets, at powwows, in ceremonies,
and on government building lawns, in prayer and recognition for their stolen sisters.

They Tried to Bury Us (they didn’t know we were seeds)

Acrylic on Canvas

For all those who did not survive the brutal Indian Residential/Boarding School legacy that lasted from the 1870s in the US
and ended in 1996 in Canada. The voices of our children have continued to call to us for more than a
century. We reclaim the spirit of our people through the reclamation of our children. We unearth the
truth of ourselves with each precious child we unearth to reclaim as our kin. May their spirits rise and
grow toward the sun, and may our heavy hearts and weary spirits be lifted with them. We dance for our
children to make this so.

The Eagle has come

Acrylic on Canvas

In a world of skyscrapers and concrete, our spirits get lost in these cold streets. In the times when we most feel lost, we must remember the teachings of the eagle, to persevere, to fly higher.
Never forget we are children of the Earth and our mother protects
