“The creator has given us many good things: the universe, the sky, the mountains, the valleys, rivers, inlets and oceans. These are the origins of our totems. For as long as I can remember the elders would take me aside and speak to me of my people and where we come from. In my work I attempt to illustrate a visual understanding of these stories and to interpret our peoples’ legends in my own style.
