Gabe & Margeaux Abeyta are embarking on their first (of hopefully many) brother and sister projects, titled "The Beginnings of My Heart." Inspired by their parents work, painter Tony Abeyta and fashion designer, Patricia Michaels. Gabe and Margeaux are both proud Native Americans from Taos pueblo, and they hope to change the stereo typical view of their people by telling a unique love story with traditional Native American themes, through modern Native American characters.
The story of Heart Girl is one that shows the challenges of insecurities and trauma. It speaks of when you find true love for the first time and have to make sure to not focus on your perceived faults. This could lead to bad spirits, for they will take what you don't appreciate. A first panic attack can feel like a heart exploding.
