Grace your home with the all three posters from Sustainable Seattle’s "In Sight" Visual Series for "The Forces that Divide and Aligning for Sustainability" Artist: Pah-tu Pitt G.
The Tahoma series are about the mountain's (known as Rainer by many) experience as a witness to increasing temperatures and catastrophic fires. The mountains breathe through the forests, glaciers, and streams. Through these experiences Tahoma continues to support life, hold clouds, and promote a shift to sustainability. Moisture and fire are important elements centered by many Native management practices with implications for the dynamism and values needed for sustainable futures.
Tahoma 1 is a mixed media Collab with Sean Gallagher (Inupiat) also of Native Kut. Blockprint and Acrylic.
Tahoma 2 is mixed media with water colors.
Cedar Rose Rising is about creating vibrant connections. Through reciprocity, we have the power to learn and lift each other up, while creating a legacy rooted in place and respect for first peoples.
