“Wolf has often been described to me through the teachings of our people as a source from which we can learn a great deal of respect.  From Wolf we have learned to work together and have respect for those of rank and nobility.  Wolf has also been a keeper of justice within the old stories that continue today.  However, it is seen throughout the world I hope to pay respect to not just an “animal” but an ancestral leader through the art that I create in my life.”

The Moon is a recurring figure in my work and for good reason.  It has long been an important part of our mythology. Long ago the Moon was born from a star being father and a human mother who dared to venture into the sky world with her sister. The women came back longing for their families where the moon was raised as a child among the people known as dakwibaɬ (Changer/Transformer). There are many stories that put him as a central figure forever changing the world in his time. I am often taken by our mythology when I admire the moon rising in the twilight as night falls.”
