"For this shirt design, I wanted it to honor all Indigenous people. The hands are based on Mississippian shell designs to honor our ancestors and the colors of each hand correlates to the directional colors in Cherokee beliefs. By including each direction color, it also includes our Indigenous relatives from each direction. The Sun design in the center honors the fire, a sacred element for Cherokees."
