About Amanda Fox
This piece symbolizes the importance of Indigenous Medicine. I have encapsulated the four sacred medicines important to our culture – Tobacco, Sage, Cedar, and Sweetgrass – on top of rawhide. I used a metal feather to symbolize how we will always be here. Our unique group came up with these statements to share in hopes that it will reach everyone. We are all treaty.
“There is healing when honouring Indigenous traditional ceremony and power in community.
Sharing our knowledge and working together can create a healthy, unified future in medicine.”
Statement of Hope
Together, our shared hope for the future of the Land and Medicine is to value the power of community and ceremony for healing by sharing and working together to create a unified future in medicine.
