"Helping Me Home"
.
It's hard to stay focused when your mind and prayers are with the survivors, and with the children who are/were buried and hidden. On a Sunday, I watched "We Were Children" (on Amazon), it was hard to watch, heartbreaking to think that my grandma was a victim to Boarding/Residential Schools. That same Sunday I went to see my older brother Shanner ( @tangledroots1 ) for a favor.
.
The three children you see are my two nieces and my nephew, The Escalanti Kids.
.
I began.
.
I had this idea to have the children floating up in the clouds reuniting with their/our Ancestors. 
.
The original plan drifted when the idea came to me before I was literally about to fall asleep. I seen this inspiring TikTok of a rally, where dancers and singers bathed in the orange smoke.  There it was, the rallies, the art, the hashtags, everything, has made it possible for these children to go home.
.
Finishing this, has cleared my mind, as an Indigenous Artist I feel it's my purpose to spread emotion, to stop the pain, to express what we feel as a people, to gain allies that can visually understand our pain and suffering, and to spread awareness so that our people can be done hurting.
.
I love my people, I love our allies, I love our Ancestors that have fought hard so I can be here to carry on the fight so my children don't need to.
