Why is it good to give back to your community? Where do you help out?
I grew up with a totally different community than I have now. Being around Native Americans has allowed for me to come into my own identity.
Family is crucial to my understanding of modern day issues in Native communities.
I express myself through my artwork and I am trying to be more political with it. Art is powerful and is how I contribute to my community.
