I’m Andrea M. Wilbur-Sigo and I’m a member of the Squaxin Island Tribe. I also have blood ties to several tribes here in Washington, from Skokomish, Nisqually, Puyallup, and Yakima to name a few. I’ve been blessed with many Elders in my life and was able to learn firsthand by family members born in the 1800’s. I pride myself on learning the pieces that my family and ancestors have left for me to learn from. I’m taking those teachings, maintaining the old, all while still evolving into the mediums that are now accessible in today's time. As Native people we have had to learn to adapt to new things all while remembering our roots. I can only hope that I leave footprints that are at least half as good as my ancestors left for me.
