American Indian Art

"I decided to do some art connected to my heritage.

Chief Sitting Bull used to run with Wild Bill. He was part of the traveling show with Wild Bill. It was one of the few pictures of the American Indians that we have as noble warriors. The Chief tried to work with the American government despite the fact that Indians as a race were being eradicated. It was a reminder to me that the Indians are an important part of “We, the People of the United States..” American constitution and were the first settlers in this land. It’s my way of honoring the American Indian."

The “little boy” Indian is a reminder that as children we need to learn from our ancestors and not lose our heritage. I suppose it’s kind of like the way little kids play cowboys and Indians, only he is one of the true Indians. He is dressed up in his tribal paint colors.

This is a painting of Sacajawea , the Shoshone woman who, with her French-Canadian husband, Toussaint Charbonneau, joined the Lewis & Clarke expedition. This is a reflective piece of her as she sat by the river with her papoose.

This is a night version of this painting as well which adds to the more realistic way of life by being in the wilderness.










This is the painting of the great Indian warrior, Geronimo. He fought for his way of life. He was a true Indian war strategist.

I liked this particular painting of a young Indian girl selling her baskets. This one is where she is selling by her teepee and on her reservation. I have another one where she is selling her baskets by some mountains. I admired the patience that I saw in her face and the concern if she would at least be able to make enough money for her family with her work.

This is an example of creating tradition and art.
Great patience was required. She is enjoying her work.
