Brooke Waldron - "Land Back"
Title: Land Back
Medium: Acrylic on Canvas, stretched over local Native white pine
"A symbolic statement representing the reclamation of Native narratives, culture, history, homeland and community. The sacred animals, raven of the pacific northwest and messenger in our creation stories, the Fox, representing intellect and the turtle, mother earth encompassing Turtle Island. The devastation and connection we feel to our environment, and the sacrifices made by generations of Native people to protect it."
