Mashpee Wampanoag Indian Artist

It has been said that artists are the true visual historians of world cultures. Although I was unconscious about this role when I began my artistic experience, today I gladly offer this gift to the Tribal Circle.
As children, we are encouraged to discover and master the special gifts placed inside us by the creator, and through our ancestors. These gifts are intentional and important to offer, as adults, in the Tribal Circle. Each clan has a place of expertise, each individual has a unique and specialized gift appropriate for the generational need of the people.
I come from the Bear Clan, known as a medicine clan to most tribes. In the Mashpee Tribe, it has been one of mystery and spiritual pursuits. When the elders speak about members of my clan, they tell strange stories of direct communication with living spirits of plants, animals, elements, water beings, winged-ones and, of course, human spirits. Information gathered from these spirits reveal correct uses of herbs, mineral substances, elemental combinations, and a wealth of medicine ways for the people to maintain health.
