8x10inch print. Many Alaska Native groups are rooted in the oil industry, including my own. Oil funds our entire economies, some of us are born as babies with stocks that are funded by oil, and many of us work in positions where oil pays our salaries and healthcare. However, it has become clear that oil is killing our only earth, and one day it will not be a livable environment. Many of us who accept the science feel uneasy and sometimes scared of how the shift from oil is going to affect our Indigenous people. This art piece pays tribute to Alaska Native people who are willing and ready to pull themselves from the grip of the oil industry. Indigenous people are resilient. When the world makes its shift to clean energy, Indigenous people will once again survive and prosper in a more perfect world. This item is posted for pre-order. Please allow 1-2 weeks for shipment.
