Also, I occasionally  have someone suggest that to be taken seriously I should remove my animated figures, reduce all the colour, in other words, 'vanilla-ize' the site so it looks more professional.  I am a lover of colour, animation and a lot of humour. After forty-five years as a professional Indigenous artist/educator, writer, if you can't take me seriously, removing fun little animated graphics isn't going to change that. Stand Tall, Sing Loud, Drum Proud. See y'all at the Big Drums. Cheers.

Unrepentant Tsimshian Elder
