5. 39 Ancestral Portraits Indians First … So what about my contemporaries? What do they think? Does what they do and say affect the way that I am and the artist I’ve become? As First Nations people, we always seem to be talking to ourselves and, in some cases, to at least some people who have an understanding and appreciation for our culture. It seems that it is always these converted few who have some sort of understanding of the other cultures within or alongside their communities. The other cultures are not easily reachable and accessible to their way of life, especially the cultures of the other peoples who are not directly adjacent to the First Nations people.
It is in everything and reflected from everything. There is a beginning and an end. When we’ve felt the spirits and we’ve seen the colours of life, then we’ve come full circle and there is understanding. In the Beginning Colours are very useful when it comes to composing a painting. Every culture on Earth has placed meaning and significance on colours, including the First Nations people of North America. It is within this parameter, as a Cree artist, when using colours to convey my visions, that I am conscious of our traditional colours: white, yellow, red, and blue (or black).
In my opinion, this transcends any “politically correct” statement that may be in fashion. A word is a word; so let’s use it respectfully, with understanding, and let’s get on with our lives. All there needs to be is an understanding of one person and then respecting that person for who they are—whether they are from the engines of the politically correct mainstream or from an isolated cylinder of society that time forgets. We will all change in some manner and to varying degrees; it all depends on which community we belong to.
