My Art of Indigenous Peoples

'The Seer'

‘The Seer’



The ‘Seer’ is an Elder from Katzebue, A village in western Alaska. He is a well respected Healer, and Medicine Man. Looking into his eyes brought me into a glimpse of myself and filled my heart with bliss. The Inuit, or Inupiat are a gentle, humorous tribe. They know life is a joke and they enjoy being part of the joke. I found their childlike quality and giggle familiar and endearing, as it reminded me of myself.
