  •   estasia_ Ooo must be a good trade!! 2w
  •   nativesol @estasia_ yes, she just happened to guerrilla set up her art work next to me as I was breaking down and she saw my creations and asked if I wanted to trade. I saw her work and it was amazing and agreed. We couldn't understand each other but we brought up feminism and Ana tijoux and we instantly knew this was a special moment. Ended up trading over $360 worth of art/creations and we were both so ecstatic. Loved it. Miss ya gotta chat soon. 2w

nativesol This was my contributing piece to the @af3irm #earringsofshadowandlight art show. Here's the description : Dedicated to and honoring the Missing, trafficked, and murdered indigenous/aboriginal women and girls in Canada. The Dream Catcher originated from the Objibwe people that inhabited mothe regions of Canada and part of northern United States. The dream catcher symbol later became adapted by other Native Tribes throughout North America as a symbol of unity. I chose a dream catcher for this piece to represent the Indigenous missing and murdered women. It also symbolizes a dream that is shattered through the injustice, discrimination, and violence Indigenous women face in Canada. A dream that can no longer be full-filled because their lives are now taken. Indigenous people only make up 4% of Canada's population but 16% of their female murder victims. Over 1200 indigenous women in Canada were missing/murdered. The count is higher according to the affected communities. The Mirror represent reflection. When we look at the mirror we see ourselves, we see our reflection. Our missing/trafficked/murdered indigenous sisters are a reflection of ourselves. They can be us, our sisters, our aunts, our family, neighbors, etc. The discrimination and injustice they go through is a reflection of our society and government. The appalling number of missing/murdered Indigenous Canadian women is human rights violation that simply states that their lives don't matter and are devalued. But they do matter to us. We feel their pain, their families loss, and we see ourselves in their struggles. The Mirror is a symbol to remind us that these are our sisters. Let's not forget them. They are our reflection and we must honor their lives. The beads symbolizes the numbers of the thousand missing/lost lives times 2 or 5. The Beads connect us all. Connects our struggles. The recycled leather feather has names of some of the Missing/Murdered women and girls of Canada from as young as ages 3 and up. They are the several ones I chose randomly and some based on their story from articles I read. And they are only a few names out of thousands of victims. Let's honor our "stolen" Sisters. #nativesol 2w
