First came the great canoes over the big water.They brought us ponies,for which we were thankful. Then came the pale riders,throwing fire and spilling sacred blood….for shiny rocks.They gave us disease and soothed us with firewater….they gave us promises. Then came the prairie schooner and the iron horse,leaving a wide trail.They disdained life and removed it…..even mountains!!! They put steel and concrete where paradise once thrived……..and then they took the eagle as their symbol,put the buffalo on their coins,and gave their villages and waters our names….They even built a great totem in the waters of their greatest village…..‘’.is this our tribute? ’’ the native laments…………The Great Spirit ……only sighs. …………….oil on canvas —24×30in

    A great concept, beautifully painted—how these folk were so close to nature and treated all the natural world with the love and respect most westerners seem to lack
