Tasha Faye Evans
Indigenous dance artist Tasha Faye Evans’ latest work is Cedar Woman, a collaboration with visual artist Ocean Hyland. In this short film, she shares work in process, and discusses the ideas and inspiration which underpin it.
At the core of me, is you. The first seed that planted and grew, and grew and grew. I am your prayers. I am all of your dreams wrapped into me. I am your every fall and rise and fall and rise again. When I fight and lose and fight and lose again and again it is your voice that sings and then mine and my daughter’s after me. We are a legacy. Coast Salish women. Cedar Women. – Tasha Faye Evans
