I was really inspired by this shirt and the message to remember that September was crying month for many people on Turtle Island.
I decided to make everyone in the family a version of this t-shirt to remind us of the two sided nature of education for indigenous people which I discussed in this post. I traced Runa's foot and began to paint. I really love to work with the fabric paints as it gives an almost chalk affect. I drew a different animal for each family member and in the design of each on I included the names of family members who went to residential schools. These names are broken up and sideways or upside down.
