I read a story at the museum about the origins of a Canadian, sub-arctic people called the ‘Dogrib’. It is said in folklore, that a village was driven from their homes by savages, and that one girl escaped & began to live in the forest among wild dogs. From then on she became at one with them and so the Dogrib people were born.
Visually, I imagined a girl evocative of Princess Mononoke in the Studio Ghibli film, a wild looking girl with the skin of a wolf on her head and warpaint on her cheeks. It inspired me to make some lino prints and drawings which i’ll hopefully post if/when I can scan them..
