White Swan

My work speaks to the beautifully intricate space occupied by Indigenous people… For me and many other indigenous people, there is no longer a two-world binary, one red, one white; there is a multiplicity of worlds we now must walk among, between, through, and be challenged by… Navigating the spaces between large cities and my home community in the Arctic serves as a foundation for my practice.
