"Respect the Sun"
The piece shown is to remind us to respect and honour the sun. The sun holds a connection to everything on earth, it gives life and it can be a threat, a powerful element. I am concerned that we are not leaving a healthy planet for our next 7 generations. The eagle is very important to my people as it represents love and flies high in the sky and has a connection to the Heavens.. This eagle is flying towards the sun with one wing reaching out towards the sun for healing and to show respect, the other is pointing down towards the earth to honour the connection. The image
also represents us as people having one hand on earth and our other hand reaching towards the Heavens. We need to be reminded of respecting all our relations in order to start healing .Msit no'kmaq

The centre of the mural shows the medicine wheel, representing the four colours, the four seasons, the four directions. There are many teachings in the medicine wheel. It can also represent the circle of life.
The whale ( putup) represents the water and all the water cycles and the life that depends on the water. The tree is connected to the earth and the air, we breath in what the trees breathe out and vice versa, that is how we survive.
The eagle ( kitpu) is an important element in my paintings, they are protectors and represent love.
The painting reminds us to honour the cycles and respect all the elements when we work with the land.
The hummingbird ( militaw) symbolizes beauty, joy and playfulness.
The Moose spirit( tiam) coming into the mural from the side is a woodland creature, tiam stands for protecting habitats and the need to share the earth in a good and respectful way.
