Gatherings

Every culture around the globe shares a sense of cultural familiarity and order within their community through ritual practices or similar purpose in formal or informal ceremonies.  After witnessing my first smoking ceremony in the Kimberley in a remote Aboriginal community in 2007, I was transported back to my childhood and time spent with my grandmother honouring our ancestors traditions through sequestered rituals in small gatherings to large-scale social celebrations and commemorations.
