This deeply spiritual and powerful hand-carving depicts The Chief in the city, who is not in the nature anymore, so his feet are stuck in the concrete. He is holding a pipe and praying for nature to come back and also praying for his soul that was connected to the nature. This is how the life feels for a lot of Indigenous people that currently live in the city.
On the back of this carving you can see is a petroglyph of the creator, making the world with the spiral and the tree, saying "Everything in life is sacred". We have to answer for what we've done.
