Tatanka Come Back, began to commemorate the return of the Bison to Banff National Park. Tatanka also represents our First People. I had been thinking about the residential school system which tore children from their families and placed them behind barriers. In my sorrow for those children, the barbed wire of containment was placed. As I worked on the image, two birds appeared- and they remain. The birds represent Spirit, for no matter how we are contained, Spirit can always be free.
