Life Kept Close


When a loved one has passed on, it doesn't mean goodbye forever. We can bring them with us everywhere we go.


Within our Culture, we are taught to learn by watching without instructions. I learned from my Uncle who disappeared while out hunting. His disappearance happened during the time of season in this picture.

My Uncle drove into the sun and didn't see that the ice conditions he was driving into were bad. He ended up driving into a hole he couldn't get out of.
He was never found. There was a small difference in how my Dad did his skinning and the way my Uncle showed me. I treasure how they both taught me to hunt.
