Photo by @CristinaMittermeier | The connection that indigenous people have to nature is something that fascinates me. People like the Tla’amin First Nation, to whom young @Takaiya_Blaney belongs, have artistic and spiritual traditions that have been practiced on the Pacific Northwest Coast for over 5,000 years. Her hat is made from carefully harvested cedar bark and the symbols on her dress, speak of her sacred relationship with totem animals. It is her voice that really matters, however. As the youngest person to ever speak to the UN forum for indigenous rights, she speaks for her people and for all the other indigenous people of our planet, who like her, are fighting for their survival. #followme at @CristinaMittermeier to see more stories from #thewatersedge. #indigenous #youth #leader
