Hunting & Gathering

I was out for a cruise when my cousin saw moose & my grandpa didn't believe him. I don't remember if he cried, but my cousin didn't lie & soon after my grandpa shot it. I tried to be brave, when I seen that big moose face, but I never really seen that before. It's tongue was off to the side, my eyes were so wide, as grandpa showed us what to do. That was one of my first hunting experiences that I can remember. It was crazy to see, but I knew I loved dry meat, so I stood there quiet & waited.

Another time I was in the woods with my mom when she randomly screamed, "wahoo". We were out picking berries & although it was scary, I thought it was just something you do. Pick, pick, wahoo! So I did it too, thought we were having fun with those berries. I later found out, when she'd let out her shout...It was for bears..Not for berries. That was one of my first gathering memories.

Hunting & Gathering Cont.

Artist Statement: This poem was created to highlight some of my earliest memories out on the land with my family. The artwork is meant to depict a successful hunt from the front with the moose hide camo vest and sheared beaver "velvet" on the antlers & a fashion statement from the back with beadwork inspired by the entire hunting experience & the land.

A Storyteller's Pride

Beaded memories

Digging around for something

I know she sees me

Artist Statement: I chose a haiku for this piece because I felt like it would have an unspoken bond feel. My great great grandma Angela Sidney was a famous story teller. She also gave me my Tlingit name & told my mom I would "always be digging around looking for something." The idea with the artwork was that she sees me telling stories with my beadwork & living up to my name, so she smiles down from her Tlingit Aurora of seaweed patterns & ermine fur.
