"Our Home and Native Land" by Jennifer Lynn

Found this in the comments section:

Before I begin to explain the background behind my painting, I must first say that I was definitely not expecting it to circulate around Facebook when I posted it as a donated item in a local support auction. That being said, I feel that it is important to note that I am neither First Nations nor Aboriginal. Rather, the inspiration for 'Our Home and Native Land' came from a combination of both my studies in Geography and in First Nations Art while I was attending UNBC.

Growing up in Northern BC, I have always been fascinated with the intricate art designs and style of the Northwest Coast First Nations, and as a non-Aboriginal person, it took much research and practice to create this painting. The painting was created for a First Nations Art class in which we were given the topic of ‘Synchronous Dichotomous,’ and like any form of art, this piece can offer any number of interpretations. However, my intention was this: This ‘map’ of Canada illustrates the synchronous, intricately connected relationship that First Nations People have with their land. Simultaneously, it demonstrates the dichotomy that First Nations’ were faced with as the imposition of borders separated them from their land.

Although the ‘map’ layout and design were inspired by my own background in Geography (each province embodies its provincial animal ‘symbol’), the art technique itself is simply a representation of the Northwest Coast Art Style which is utilized by several First Nations in British Columbia - all of which I find to be extraordinary.

If you wouldn't mind posting this on my behalf, even tagging me in the post, I would greatly appreciate it 

Thanks again,

Jennifer Adomeit

The river connecting two oceans: A creek in Wyoming splits in two, one side flowing to the Atlantic and one side to the Pacific. You can't pass the blue line without crossing water.

From Wikipedia:
Parting of the Waters is an unusual hydrologic site at Two Ocean Pass on the Continental Divide, within the Teton Wilderness Area of Wyoming's Bridger-Teton National Forest. Two Ocean Pass separates the headwaters of Pacific Creek, which flows Westerly to the Pacific Ocean, and Atlantic Creek, which flows Easterly to the Atlantic Ocean. At Parting of the Waters, exactly on the Continental Divide at 44°02.576′N 110°10.497′WCoordinates: 44°02.576′N 110°10.497′W, North Two Ocean Creek flows down from its drainage on the side of Two Ocean Plateau and divides its waters more-or-less equally between its two distributaries, Pacific Creek and Atlantic Creek. From this split, Two Ocean Creek waters flow either 3,488 miles (5,613 km) to the Atlantic Ocean via Atlantic Creek and the Yellowstone, Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, or 1,353 miles (2,177 km) to the Pacific Ocean via Pacific Creek and the Snake and Columbia Rivers. At Parting of the Waters, water actually covers the Continental Divide such that a fish could safely swim from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean drainages. In fact, it is thought that this was the pass that provided the immigration route for Cutthroat Trout to migrate from the Snake River (Pacific) to Yellowstone River (Atlantic) drainages.
