Words from the artist: 

"My Elders taught me respect for traditional Native Ways, and that it is my responsibility to share this knowledge.  We believe that when “looking” for moose, caribou and other game that our spirit has to be right with Creator.  In this manner the moose or caribou “gives itself” to us.  All of the animal is used for food, clothing, utensils, tools, and for use in adornment to honor the gift of it’s life to sustain our life."
