How my piece connects to the art prompt is that Indigenous people are the future, we’ve been here & will forever be here. What my hopes are about the Indigenous future is that we combat majority of these issues. I’ve listed some of the issues that we deal with around the people as they hold hands to symbolize our support for one another because we’re not just a community, we are relatives. Why I listed imposter syndrome is because I deal with it since I’m reconnecting and I know many natives deal with it too.
