CARD // BEAR SONG
"In my culture, women are held as leaders and in this painting, I want to depic the clan system as being a form of governance that makes for a strong community, and a system that requires that women participate as full members of the community.
I view Bear as a powerful, visible protector of the people and I think that the Bear Clan offers strong leadership qualities. Women possess this spirit and art best suited to make decisions and to lead for they demonstrate the courage and teach the moral and mental strength required to overcome fear."
- Mike Alexander, an Anishinaabe artist from Swan Lake First Nation in Treaty #1 territory in Manitoba, now relocated to his new home in Squamish, BC, Canada. He is the son of the Diane Tukundum (Swan Lake) and Norman Courchene (Sagkeeng)
