Description by Artist: ‘Turtle Lodges‘ – “The turtle is an important symbol of the earth and Indigenous peoples have expressed their kinship with the earth and the living world through the formation of family clans. The Anishinabe call these family clans “dodems”. This painting honours the family who are members of the Turtle Clan Dodem. This painting is created to look like the original rock paintings of First Nations people.”
