Dominique Normand presents a portfolio filled with images and stories of native culture in Canada.

"Buffalo Seed" by Cree (First Nations) artist Jane Ash Poitras (2004) at the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto - From the curators' comments: "The buffalo taught the Natives about the importance of sunflowers. The virtual slaughter of those animals that had knowledge that white settlers didn't is a metaphor for the slaughter of the Aboriginal people and the dissolution of their knowledge and culture. The two are parallel."

"It's Good for Your Heart" by Cree (First Nations) artist Jane Ash Poitras (2003) at the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto - From the curators' comments: "In 1785 an English physician, named William Withering, was credited with discovering that the European foxglove plant, Digitalis purpurea, was useful in curing heart-related  problems when made into tea. First Nations people divined curative potential in the appearance of foxgloves, and by observing how the plant attracts hummingbirds."
