ᐊᒐᐦᑯᐢ ᐊᐋᐧᓯᐢ ~ acâhkos awâsis ~ star child. This piece is a painting of a dream I had when nikosis (my son) was still in the womb and his ahcâhk (spirit) was receiving teachings from the star people. My kihtehayak have taught me that we are among the star people before our spirit descends into the physical world. This piece depicts the star people sharing teachings with the unborn ahcâhk, including some of the original instructions and medicines that comprise the bundle baby will bring into the world. Colour-coded nêhiyawêwin syllabics spell out some of these teachings: kisêwâtisiwin, kistêyihtamowin, mâtinamâkêwin, miyo wîcêhtowin, sâkihitowin, tapahtêyimisowin, tâpokêyihtamowin, and wâhkôhtowin.
