About the Artist: The Dawning of a New Day by Gabe, a client of Anishnawbe Health Toronto – “When I used to draw this cabin before my time of healing, the window and door would be black, and I could not see through. I used to live in darkness as I would sleep all day and would be up all night. Now, when I draw this cabin, the window and door are white, and I can see everything clearly. I am thankful to the Creator for helping me in my healing journey.
