Westward Bound. Lithograph.

Heart Line. Etching, chine colle, 18“ x 24.”

In Lakota lore the buffalo carries in their heart the strength of their people. This is called a Heart Line. The writing connecting the mouth with the heart represents how humans should use their heart as the center of their strength.

History Lesson. 16" x 20". Lithograph, relief, chine colle'. 2002  Reminiscent of Indian ledger drawings, this print pictures the soldier on the left, with text from official statistics underneath. The right depicts the Indian, with writings taken from my great grandmother¹s journals written in Sioux. The red irregular shapes in the background represent small pox under a microscope. Disease was another factor in the demise of the native way of life.

What shall we do with our Indians? Lithograph, chine colle'. 16" x 20”. (2002)  The text was taken from a British phamplet which referred to the problem of the "Indians" in India and how they should be dealt with. This is superimposed over native writings in red and the Indian rising is a metaphor for rising above the conflict.
