Our Elders

This painting is based on a photo of my family in our yard. We always had kids running around in our yard. The painting is also about memories of my mother, who was a also grandmother, and who loved to hand down her stories to all the young ones. Stories of knowledge. It wasn’t just with her own grandchildren but also with other children that she shared her stories. She was a leader and wouldn’t let the kids be taken away. She travelled around fighting for the rights of our people.
