I submitted my fist ever Vamps (beaded moccasin tops) to the Walking With Our Sisters Art installation; a commemorative collection of works to missing and murdered indigenous women. This exhibition, set to start October 2013 in Vancouver, will travel all across North America until 2019. Check out the link below for more information on the exhibit.
Walking With Our Sisters
First People’s Festival
For the month of July, I will be teaching children ages 6-12 about stop motion animation. We will go over storyboarding, character and set building, and how to create an animation. Each child will be creating a story based on each element of the thanksgiving address of the Mohawk First Nation. We will be presenting our short compilation of films at our local film festival! Hopefully I can provide our children with recognition in our communities.
