Destiny Morgan, From Seeds, We Expect Changes

Destiny Morgan (Diné, Nahiłii)
From Seeds, We Expect Changes
Digital media booklet

“They tried to bury us, but they didn’t know we were seeds,” is an empowering statement of resilience and continuity. Whether this allows us to stand up against broad injustice or merely minor personal challenges, I believe it provides us with strength and a starting point for more in-depth contemplation. Seeds are used to symbolize new beginnings. From tiny seeds, we can expect mighty changes.
