My art piece was done in colored pencil and took approximately 2 months to complete. I decided to focus on the resilience part of the prompt. I drew a fancy shawl dancer as I see traditional dances as a form of resilience. I see traditional dance as a way to resist the fading of our culture. Although I personally do not dance, it is incredibly inspiring to see young Native Americans taking part in our traditional ways.
