The Native woman in this piece is standing in a pose that celebrates her resilient nature and ability to overcome things that come her way.
Native American women exhibit a resilient insight and an ability to navigate difficulties that arise in life or in a family.
That insight is demonstrated by asking for help or advice from others. She does not try to solve anything by herself.
The ribbon skirt she is wearing is adorned with floral patterns meant to represent nature and this ribbon skirt also explains the resiliency found in nature.
Nature can be effected by a number of things: drought, fire, human factors, etc. But nature has a way of adapting and evolving to these circumstances.
Native women and Nature demonstrate the same resilient virtue when confronted by circumstances out of their control.
