Something has become a little questionable. If your truly passionate about your culture you’ll be out there doing it, living and breathing it, advocating and making real communal change, helping without expecting something in return. Exploitation. For personal or popularity gain or the most famous one financial gain. You will always know the difference between someone who is living breathing their passion in culture, exposing their culture in the right light and someone who’s exploiting their culture for their own gain. Like anything else in the world seeing people take something their not passionate about and turn it into a circus for people’s eyeing entertainment, is exploitation. Your using something to look good,for a second. For months I’ve had many emotional encounters, the most important thing in my life right now is having a real in depth connection to our culture, our home. My only regret is not having started this journey through my imagery years ago. This is the most passionate I have ever been. I’ve found it. And something I’m working through tears and hard knocking emotions to get to. If you aren’t truly for your people, your culture then don’t exploit it. Don’t exploit it because being connected to indigenous is cool or because others are doing it or because of its rarity it’s worth a lot. Because real passion takes time, time you spend making changes. Do something to bring back real depth to what our elders worked so hard to keep alive. If you can sit with our old people and listen to their stories for hours, upon days, upon weeks and months to regain a sense, a plan of how you can keep it all alive, only then are you really fit for cultural and traditional passion. Papa Mike has taught me so much about that connection, and having the willingness to learn it all, even when you don’t have the time or can’t be bothered. He taught me to always be bothered because one day it’ll all be gone if we don’t learn it all now. And without saying it, he’s got me doing it. Doing more behind the scenes than on the screens says a lot more about what you truly represent 🌱 #photo #photography #art #culture
