Letting go, lessons from Chief Vern
Points of View – National Human Rights Photography Exhibition
Lessons from Chief Vern, 2013, Joey Podlubny, Calgary, Alberta

Chief Vern Janvier, Chipewyan Prairie First Nation, would often say to me, “Let it go.” Letting go of what I thought something was or should be. Letting go of past beliefs. Letting go of my ego. He taught me that if we allow ourselves to see a new way, it can be one filled with love for each other and Mother Earth.
