“This is both a combination of the Ancestral House series and part of the series of the Return of the Forgotten Warriors. The Forgotten Warrior series was inspired by a CD sent to me by Janet Rogers, the Mohawk writer, living in BC. It was a First Nations chant and I did a series of paintings on that subject remembering the number of single men who went to war and never returned to have a family.”
