Why Not Both?

This week I have a bit of a throwback for you. I made this video in 2014 to enter in a video contest. It speaks to an issue close to my heart. It’s about balancing Indigenous traditional life with modern day life. Honestly looking back on makes me cringe, and I hate the sound of my voice. Hopefully you find it more entertaining than I do.

If I could go back I would use real regalia instead of a costume. However, I always do things last minute so this was all I could find.

This video is on my personal youtube channel, so feel free to check on the other videos there to see my family acting goofy. If I ever get enough time I would like to make videos to go along with some of my blog posts. If that happens they will be posted to a dedicated youtube channel for this blog.
