A person stands outdoors holding a large feather and a decorated wooden box with a painted floral design. They are wearing a white button-up shirt, glasses, and have a pendant necklace of a tree. The environment includes a green tree, a house with a porch in the background, and foliage near the building's foundation. The person's expression is serious and they look directly at the camera.

My Beginnings

“You have the love and respect of your grandparents, and eventually that’s what you become.”
Knott explores her beginnings with family and love through their connection to one another, Land, water, plants, and animals. There is loss and reconnection, while also building courage “to take back my life.” The spiritual cycle continues.
