This is called Kiskisihk Kikway - “memory”.
This is my version of a lilac blossom. This memory of my uncle John’s house kept popping up in my mind recently. I remember being with my brothers and sister and cousins. We were playing in the backyard but we all stopped to smell the lilacs. I don’t remember anything else about the day, but I remember that. The smell of lilacs make me think of my uncle John now, in a roundabout way. It makes me feel so happy and means so much more now that he has crossed over to the spirit world.
That’s why I named this Kisikihk Kikway, “memory”. Happy memories are what motivate me on the days it’s hard for me to feel motivated. I wanted to find a way to honour that feeling, so I made this. ❤️
