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.
This week’s word is:
Names tell us who we are, and impact the way others see us. Discussions of my blog’s name, my own name and Indigenous naming practices after the jump!
Happy Saturday! If you follow me on twitter and instagram you may have seen a few of these already. But if not, here are some of the drawings I’ve created recently.
