I’m an artist and crafter from Southern California. I’m currently working on my reservation and trying to better myself and those around me through nutrition and agriculture. In the future I plan to develop my art skills and become tattoo artist.
My art piece shows bird dancers and the mountains, I chose these because “belonging” to me includes the land and culture. I feel as though there is a difference between being a native descendant and living as a native. Living as a native to me means decolonizing and learning the culture and traditions; it also means embracing the land and using it to your advantages.
