“I painted the Raven first and when he was done I knew he was looking back at the past. I started looking at old Haida totem poles. I felt a sense of pride looking at the amazing art my Haida heritage created long before my time but also a little sad that they were fading away. I thought it would be kind of neat to paint them in my painting and kind of preserve them a little longer.”
