My painting this year includes my hopes for the future; ending climate change, equality and peace for all, my aspiration to become a music producer, and for the people on reservations to have running water and electricity! So many of my Nations people were lost during the pandemic and a contributing factor is no running water and no electricity. Also, elders perish in winter due to the extremely cold temperature and no heating. There are many other things in this world I wish would take place, but my main priorities are included in my art piece. Thank you.
