    New Artwork for Awash Team in Eeyou Istchees 2017
    Natasia Mukash painting represents the life process. From the beginning of conception (left), to carrying a child and birth (center)      and family and to Elders and community support (far right). Geese choose one life partner in their lifetime. They protect each              other and create life and family just like we do. They carry the message of life, family, love and spirit.
