My recent works celebrate the life of my late mother Anita and our prairie Métis heritage. Mum’s stories, artifacts and documents challenged the silence surrounding our Indigenous ancestors and inspired some of us to embrace this heritage. Mum used stories to model behaviour and values such as the importance of kindness, generosity, humour, family ties and respect for the natural world.
