The One is a series based on the teachings of my father who learned the traditional ways of our people from his great grandfather. Some Anishinaabe (Ojibwe) people believe in The One, a spirit person who represents the past, present, and future of all Indigenous peoples. The One reminds us that we are filled with strength, power, love, and compassion needed to guide our youth toward reaching their potential as future leaders. It is our responsibility to support them in this endeavour. In physical form, The One appears differently to each person. I have created my own interpretation through working in a number of mediums such as wearable art, wearable art sculpture, and mixed media painting.
