The Altar I
As an immigrant, the past and current living conditions of people like me always draw attention and stir up emotions; However, the recently revealed graves urges me to reexam the early period of the state and the legacy that has been left to the indigenous people from a distinctive perspective as a non-indigenous witness.
As a descendant of an ancient nation, I understand how much the traditional ceremonies mean to the indigenous peoples in North America. They express their emotions and understandings about life and death in their cultures. Through singing and the rhythm of drumming, the spirits of the deceased are comforted so that they are able to rest in peace. This became the starting point to develop concepts of The Altar I.
