Express Earth Day

Spontaneous Witnessing Response Poetry
By Diane McLeod

Deep into the earth, we must go.

Aki (Mother Earth) nurtures.

I love you, Makwa (Bear).

I love you, Aki.

I love you, Gitche Manitou (Great Energy/Great Love).

You are forever loved in a time of anguish.

You are healing medicines.

I am presently an art therapy student at Winnipeg Holistic Expressive Arts Therapy: Diploma Program (WHEAT) in Canada. I am mostly a self-taught artist that was born in Kenora, Ontario, Canada in 1965. I am from the Animakee Wa Zhing #37 First Nation located 76 km away from Kenora. I live in Kenora where I work as a professional artist. 

I am an Anishinaabe (Ojibway) and mixed cultured woman, and mother of three and from the Makwa Doodem (Bear Clan). My short experimental videos are informed and influenced by a spirituality of a higher self, guardians, and ancestors.
