Bio: My name is Liberty Stump, I also go by Josephine (one of my middle names) I am 18 years old, and originate from Williams Lake B.C., specifically from ?Esdilagh, formerly known as Alexandria, but now reside in Sq’éwlets (Scowlitz) with my mother and siblings and am Tšilhqot’in (sil-cot-een).
Description of Artwork: My artwork represents connections; it recognizes the deep and complex webs of life within and between First Nations Communities. It also represents the connections that we, as a community, have with the land, culture, and history of this country. The arrow represents strength and resilience, The Tipi and “modern” houses represent our history and how we have developed and grew together, The Sun (in the middle) represents life and how it was given to us, and the People represent all of us and how we are all the same, even throughout our history. The 4 triangles, on the sides, represent the medicine wheel and how it signifies the earth and its boundaries as well as all of the knowledge in the universe. Overall, my logo represents our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual ties within us and our communities as well as the connections we have with each other.
