About the Art
"Mother Tongue" conceptualizes the passing of the most ancient ancestral knowledge. The voice and strength of our people resides within us, passed in an unbroken chain of language, lifeways, medicine, and innate knowledge. They whisper their secrets and walk with us if we choose to listen. When we forget our face and lose our way, it is medicine, it is teacher, and power.

All artistic mediums explored express a feeling and longing for reconciliation, and connection so present in many indigenous people. The end of this journey is discovery, love, and strength.
