Samples of my work
Tsonoqua, wild woman of the woods is a shared teaching for many Coast Salish. When I was young and my mom was doing ceremony in the mountains we were told by our aunties to be sure we stayed in the car; we were told Tsonoqua has a cedar basket on her back and she steals children. I adapted this story and put Tsonoqua in an RCMP uniform to highlight the RCMP involvement in bringing Indigenous children to Residential Schools. There are three ribbons flying from her basket the orange for residential school children, red for the MMIWG2S and the black for the RCMP related deaths of Indigenous folks. Dismantling the RCMP is needed for Reconciliation. There is no justice until the RCMP are held accountable for their involvement in residential schools, MMIWG2S and RCMP brutality and related deaths of Indigenous folks.
