My piece is called intergenerational power. This piece includes me, my mom, both of my grandmas, and my great-great-grandma. The corn represents life and the clouds are enabling the corn to grow and thrive. I was always taught that you carry all of the past generations with you. These past generations are what makes you resilient when faced with trouble. They are what make you so connected with your culture and the past. All of the intergenerational trauma that you carry turns into intergenerational power.
