Before Melissa was born her mother heard a knocking on the door. When she opened it and looked outside no one was there. Her father was sleeping at the time and when he woke up he told Melissa’s mother that he had dreamed of an animal spirit. That animal spirit was Melissa’s totem and that is how her parents knew that she was inside her mother.
Melissa participated in a print workshop held in Milingimbi with printmaker Theo Tremblay which accommodated students between the ages of 12 and 17 years. These students were asked to depict family scenes.
