Medicine Paintings: “Sýemit (Prayers) for a New Day”, 2018 Handmade ochre, bone black, and oil paint on canvas, Collection of the Artist 20" W x 28" H
This painting was created using the iconography of my people the Nlaka’pamux, this canvas represents a face painted with a prayer. Using materials collected and harvested from the land, I am using medicine from the earth for the earth and all that is. “Prayers for a New Day”, the black vertical strips radiating from the eyes represent the pain, sorrow and suffering we as peoples of the earth have endured at the hands of violent ideologies and systems. The red vertical lines are thicker and therefore more powerful and they symbolize prayers that we will prevail over the sorrow of all peoples.
Red symbolizes goodness, success and friendship; these are the prayers that have been sent out into the world with the red morning star occupying the central position of the forehead surrounded by smaller stars. The horizontal line at the top is the new day; the new day will include friendship among all peoples and our sorrow will be healed.
This is the first in a series of Medicine Paintings this one in particular was painted as I was doing research for the exhibition “Body Language: Reawakening Cultural Tattooing of the Northwest” which is running currently at the Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art, in Vancouver BC. As I began the research for this exhibition and its catalogue I began to uncover layer after layer of abuse, mistreatment and genocide that has been enacted on my friends and their ancestors who live along the Northwest Coast. This research made me mad, and angery and I painted this painting first as medicine for myself and second as a prayer for all the wrongs to be righted. Especially the continued unlawful occupation and extraction of resources from unceded Indigenous lands. #oilpainters #gamblinpaints #gamblinoilpaint #indigenousartist #indigenoustecnology #salishartist #painting #oilpainting #portrait #portraitpainting #artistslife #ndn #nativeartist #nativeart #handmadeoilpaint #medicinepainting

‘Looking Glass’  the continued that isn’t in the clip is “Because I see you sis
And you are still here
And when it seems like you’re waiting for the answer to find you but it is no where near
I hope you let my voice echo in your ear
Im standing by you
In the depths of your fears
I see you sis
You are worthy 
You are loved
You are me
I am you 
The reflection is now clear” 
Shout out to my sis and goddess of a woman @majesticjune_ for the video. Thank you to all that let me share this little bit of me with you. I was hesitant to go up but I am really happy I did. Thanks for looking 💖✌🏽

:: Chrysler Museum of Art | Norfolk, VA ::
After finishing this week’s testing I wanted to take the time to do something fun before heading home. My original plan was to hit the beach but unfortunately I couldn’t after having my skin biopsy.😑 …………………………………………….....................
So instead I decided to checkout a nearby art museum. I don’t visit museums as often since becoming chronically ill and I honestly get tired of seeing the same Eurocentric art and even ancient art. …………………………………………….....................
I was quite surprised by the diversity and inclusivity of the museum’s contemporary collections. 👏🏾 There were works by artists of color and depicting people of color realistically and in a positive light! My inner art nerd wanted to ask if I could meet the curators for real. 😫
…………………………………………….....................
As an artist I have taken a hiatus from creating work due to focusing on my health but I used to create mixed-media works focused on racial and social issues. So it’s always exciting seeing new artists (and old faves) with similar styles and subject matters. .

Tommy’s artwork comes from his heart and soul. He tells the story of men dancing around a campfire, dancing to their dreamtime stories on sunset.

Esther Giles Nampitjinpa has always been a Gallery favourite. Her works depict her homelands and significant women’s ceremonial places. Esther’s style is typical of Western Desert paintings using beautiful textured dotting over a black outline of iconography. Her colour palette is unique to her and gives her paintings a  warm luminous glow. 
Certain Gallery staff may have shed the odd tear in the past when her works have sold😢😄! They are just so beautiful 🎨🌴 .

The Bush Melon is a traditional totem for a number of artists including Betty Club Mbitjana. The sweet flesh of the melon🍈 is an important form of bush tucker, enjoyed direct from the shrub as well as dried in the sun. .

May L. O’Brien is a very respected writer and educator who has been recognized since 1977. ⠀
⠀
“Badudu Stories” are a classic recount of the difficulties of learning to speak English a second language, the remarkable point is that the children learning are Australian indigenous. In a tiny little book, very suitable for early readers, we found stories rich in recounts, tradition, social and cultural commentary. This tiny little book should be a classic all around the world. ⠀
⠀
The stories are very gentle, and told from the children’s perspective. They are great to introduce so many issues of race, colonization and language to children. You can go as far as you feel comfortable with, because the stories offer hope; some are even funny, although there’s also pain. As NAIDOC week has come to an end I want to offer my respects: because of May L. O’Brien we can talk about race and colonization and the impact on children. We can keep sharing our stories as indigenous women and pass them on to our children. ⠀
⠀
We had a lovely NAIDOC week, we attended a couple of local celebrations and it was beautiful watching my daughters absorbing pride and respect for our indigenous women. It’s so inspiring; I keep hoping that one day we would have these sort of celebrations in Mexico. ⠀

Rigoberta Menchú has found herself in the middle of controversy a few times. First were the accusations of inaccurate recounts on her first book “I, Rigoberta Menchú”; more recently she’s being criticized for her political presence in Mexico. I felt a bit uncomfortable to include her children’s book here, but as far as I understand “The Honey Jar” has not being controversial and this book represents an indigenous woman writing specifically for children; it will always be part of  children’s literature.⠀
⠀
I imagine many of us are feeling the same, a bit lost in how to react to controversial writers when the children’s books look so promising for diverse kidlit. It’s hard and sad. ⠀
⠀
Honey Jar is a beautiful collection of Mayan folktales. We own an English version so I feel the tales have been translated twice, Rigoberta co-wrote the book with a laureate Guatemalan writer originally in Spanish. Like all folktales and myths some are confusing for western readers, some are a bit too intense for children, still we will study them next year when my daughter is in class three. ⠀

“Dear Listener”
Heard Museum
May 4-September 2
Nicholas Galanin, an Alaska-based artist with mixed Tlingit-Unangax and non-Native ancestry, worked with several collaborators to create illuminating pieces that punctuate the differences between indigenous and settler cultures. Using pop culture imagery and American iconography, Galanin deconstructs stereotypes of indigeneity and calls out purveyors of cultural appropriation.

When people say they can’t draw, I laugh. Everything starts as a blob or looking like an alien. .

We are so excited to share two designs this season by Indigenous Artist Amanda Westley (Conway-Jones). Amanda hand-painted these designs on canvas using her traditional dot painting method which was then scanned and printed on fabric! Amanda is a Ngarrindjeri woman, born in Victor Harbor, South Australia in 1985. Growing up she experienced the best of both worlds living the farm life 12kms out of coastal country town of Victor Harbor. •
Amanda's father was a boat builder so the water and the ocean have always been a big part of her life. Amanda's painting style is dot work and the bright colours from her coastal country hometown and the ocean are represented through her paintings. •
Check her out her work on IG @amandaindigenousartist 
Available at the end of this month in nappies, bibs and other accessories 🖤💛❤️
