"This artwork is inspired by a childhood memory of my times spent with my father searching for mud crabs during low tide. I distinctly remember walking through a very thick scrub of mangroves to get to his 'secret' spot. We didn't go hungry that day."

"Storytelling and art are integral parts of our lives. We could express ourselves with the art we had when there was no written language. We created a map for ourselves with our songs, music, dance, and artists. We understand that when we create art, there is a tremendous responsibility. Our creations don’t just belong to us. We are telling our history, illuminating our story, and documenting our spiritual journey. Through our art, we transmit ancestral guidance. Through it, we can learn about how the world came to be and navigate its complexities. Art tells us a story that is not yet complete. We, as a people with deep roots in the earth, must pick up the trail left by our old people and leave a map for future generations."
