About Indigenous Planet

“Indigenous Planet,” is based on the Four Seasons—one of the seven lessons of the Native American Medicine Wheel—where I digitally painted the Spring, Summer, Fall and upcoming Winter of my life.

Ancient Bison YellowYellow, represents Spring when I was born in Oklahoma, where the Bison used to roam freely.
London Dreamcatcher RedRed, represents Summer, when I grew up in England.
Brooklyn Bridge BlackBlack, represents Fall, where I currently live in New York City.
Future Space WhiteWhite, represents Winter, where we all just may end up in space! The turtle represents Turtle Island, which is a name for North America, used by some Indigenous Peoples in the United States and First Nations people based on Indigenous creation stories.
