I am a descendant of the Anishinaabeg of Dwaaganing, part of Wikwemkoong, on Manitoulin Island, Ontario Canada. A member of the Wemigwans clan. My grandparents were hunters, farmers, fishers, gatherers and craftspersons. My ancestors used the resources of the land wisely. My work represents the gifts of the land, and the sacrifices of the living beings who gave their lives for our food, clothing, shelter, and medicines.
