“Wolf (Ta-sha) is my interpretation of my tribes (Caddo) Creation Story. In the story, our people lived in darkness until a man named Ta’sha (wolf) came and said he would lead us to a beautiful new world. The only condition was to not look back at the darkness or the passage would be closed forever.

One man did look back and the passage closed, trapping some of our family members forever.

My Wolf is adorned with Caddo tattos and the hands represent the lost ancestors who are trapped underground, so close to the light.”
