Memories are a connection to our past, present and future. Stories told by our Elders and passed down, areas of significance where our families congregated and came together for camping, fishing or picnics and lovely sun, doing arts and crafts. This painting depicts life on the lake, sitting on the banks and enjoying the land and the day, weaving and being in the moment and teaching our children about our culture.

Amy says, “As an artist, I love the amazing and inspiring journey with our group of Elders, coming together and working on our art and telling our stories. The gallery is a place of learning, healing and hope.”
