Entry Description

My goal with this photographic series was to combine my love of nature with my interest in Canada's First Nation's history. The great nation that once was is a complicated and sensitive subject in this country. I hope in some way I have brought back to life the wonderful spirit of these people. Tanya Roberts believed in the project and allowed me to photograph her in traditional First Nation dress. I hope this work reflects the harmony these people had with nature and the true freedom they once possessed.
