To be Generation Indigenous means to be born strong. You are born worthy. Indigenous is small, compared to the feeling and the connections that come with being born Indigenous. We are a sacred part of the sacred hoop my family talks about. We are protectors, we are providers, we are our culture and our language. We are courageous. We are resilient. My drawing represents all life and life no matter the form, is sacred and has a purpose.
