MOSAIC

“I only strive to bring art into the world that reflects who I am as a human-being”

The American Continent is one of the only places on the planet where every possible facet of humanity lives together in “relative” peace.  Since the time of the Ice Age, there have been countless interactions and crossings (i.e Mongols crossing the Bering Strait in Alaska, Viking expeditions, European colonization, slave exploitation, etc.)  These intermingling societies created a large tapestry of trade and cultural networks.  Unfortunately, the history of colonization post-1400 caused deep and painful wounds that are still felt between the general populous and the living elders of the Indigenous populations on reservations continent-wide.  

✸✸

MOSAIC has one goal; to document and preserve traditional Lakota cultural knowledge in an open and free manner that allows all people the ability to access Knowledge. Good education is incredibly important for the success of any society, but it requires breaking free from the bonds of the traditional “I told you, so it’s a fact” mindset. Therefore, I spend much time researching and validating all the information that I am able through relatives and trusted sources, in order to bring you the most factual and honest collection of free educational resources possible.

✸✸✸

As with any cultural issue, there will always be controversy and differing opinions. I speak only for myself and do not represent anyone other than myself. I only strive to bring art into the world that reflects who I am as a human-being; the decedent of a Welsh immigrant, a Latino transplant, and a displaced Indigenous American, I am of all three collectively. There is no reason to segregate myself into one existence when the kaleidoscope of life offers a mosaic of beauty that everyone/anyone can and should embrace.

✸✸✸✸

We are all human—We are all one race. When are we going to start acting like it?
