    • Symbolic Interpretation
      You will notice that there is a repetition of images in each of the murals.
      This repetition is a reminder of the following:
      The animals represent our Dodems (Our Spirit Helpers) and various Clans we are of.
      The plants represent the medicinal world our early relations lived in.
      Pictograph images are used to represent the artisans who were working on them over 1,400 years ago.
