The Sharing a Story Collection

This piece by artist Half Moon Woman - Pat Bruderer is called 'Sharing a Story' and it was originally created using the birch bark biting art form, a very old form of Indigenous art where the artist uses their teeth to bite a design into a single layer of birch bark. The tradition of passing stories from one generation to the next about life, values, creation, and the natural world runs deep through Indigenous culture, and this piece represents this tradition that continues today. During colonization, many languages and stories were lost completely, and so many were never written down. This piece reminds us of how sacred languages can be because when one goes extinct, we lose so much more than just words.
