" I think that harmony is circumstantial and ultimately a personal sentiment. It is impossible for me to ignore the necessity of First Nation and Occidental influences coexisting in whatever I make, and although I experience moments of peace and resentment with the marriage of these realities, it is a circumstance that I have grown to understand more and more. […] Harmony may simply be in embracing each other and seeing how the Indigenous can inspire the Occidental and how the Occidental can inspire the Indigenous, not leaving it to one or the other to conform.
