This depicts a scene from one of my great grandmother’s stories, in which the Spider Woman comes down to help a young man travel to the moon; where his partner’s soul has wandered to. This was a story that stuck out to me strongly as a child because of the vividness of the imagery and the magic of our world. These beings, who are largely forgotten, have helped our people so much in our history. How can we honour them?
