'Aboriginality is like a Cuppa Tea' 50cm x 80cm
This painting is very close to my heart and reflects a concept that I feel resonates with many First Nation people. Our identity is forever challenged, forever stereotyped and forever changing. We are questioned on ‘what part of you is Aboriginal, what percentage are you, your not that Aboriginal or your only half-caste.’ All of these statements are based on a lack of knowledge of our people, our history and our culture. So to answer I use a statement that is used by many First Nation people – ‘Aboriginality is like a cuppa tea, no matter how much milk you add it is still tea’. We are still here, we come in so many colours, from so many backgrounds and with so many stories.
