Example text

So I ask myself: what about the other people—what do they think? I know that our people have struggled in this so-called new world, and I know that it is a long hard road leading to an uncertain future, but at least we’ve all begun to deal with our own situations. We all have a path to travel. Some people need to find their own ways, and some people will need the help of other people, and sometimes that help comes from other cultures and other societies. I understand that the First Nations people in Canada have a long journey ahead of them; yet, I strongly believe that we cannot travel this road all by ourselves.

So, wherever our imagination takes us, wherever we physically travel, whether it is in our mind or in our past, these things have existed, and they too become a memory that we’ve experienced. One last thought before I wake up. As an artist, I consider memories the reflections of light etched on my mind, and, in this same sense, dreams are light. Reflections are what I use as an artist; they have become my tool. The light refracts into many bits of memory, memory guides me to place the light into forms and compositions, allowing me opportunities to express my concepts of the colours of life.

Right now, I have only limited answers for some queries, and for others I am searching for appropriate questions so that I can find the answers or at least find a path to begin to look for the answers. Do our communities need to be deconstructed in order to be rebuilt? So many questions! To start, I have a problem with First Nations communities that want to completely segregate themselves from their surroundings so that they can begin to rebuild their own communities and so that their people, especially the younger ones, will have a better image of who they are.
