Limited Edition "Anishinaabe Woman Water Protector" - Size 18x16. Shipping out in December 2018 in time for the Holiday gifting season. Also include a special gift of Mural Gift Cards - both come wrapped in a pretty ribbon.
This painting is by Votan (NRSGNTS), an indigenous artist, and is a huge mural in downtown Duluth, MN. Our Water Protector is an Anishinaabe woman, who is looking over the greatest of the lakes--Gichi Gummi. She is facing with prayer and the power of the Natural world, the greed of the Wiindigo, the fossil fuel industry, mining and lumber barons. She is powerful.
Artist Statement: America suffers from historical amnesia. It is apparent that well into this millennium, the original inhabitants of this paradise still suffer the aftereffects of colonialism. People seeking freedom arrived on these shores over 500 years ago. It is unfortunate that in the pursuit of theirs, we were to lose ours. Corralled into areas deemed unfit for human survival, we overcame harsh conditions and thrived. The threat of our existence as a people has metastasized much like an autoimmune disease. Post colonialism has outgrown its life threatening behavior to the point that it's own life is under threat.
Invasion, slavery, relocation and many other forms of abuse weren't enough. We have now reached a point in our lives where we are all part of the sickness. We aren't just being abused, we abuse each other and we abuse our home. By annihilating ourselves, we are on a vicious course to do the same to the planet. Things have to change. The after effects are affecting us all. They are deeply engrained in our communities. We have mistaken abuse for progress.
One of the current issues, is oil. We are wise enough to see the effect of its intoxicating consumption. Beside it's pollution, the devastating effects it has in native communities is ostracized. This mural addresses this tiny fragment and puts it on a large platform. Women and children in our communities are being abducted, sold, raped and murdered for the pleasure of workers in this industry. If we address the problem, we can create solutions. Renewable energy, education and empowerment are vital. Let's change the beaten path of history.
