Lettering note

Quote from artist explaining illustration: "Traditional youth dancer is surrounded by hands in the form of a dream catcher. The hands, which symbolize the community, are protecting, guiding and nurturing the youth, thus enabling their dreams to come true. We can only help guide them in their decision making - ultimately the choices made in life are theirs." - Artist Sean Couchie
