Synopsis: A narration of an old Okanagan Nation story about the Earth's beginnings accompanies images of the artist's body, revealed while she is weight training. In this very figurative self-portrait, the female body is expanded to encompass broader cultural territory. The abstracted yet narrative images and the ancient creation story combine to invoke a contemporary exploration of Indigenous perception and even of identity, strength and connection.
