“Do not judge your neighbor until you walk two moons in his moccasins.” Cheyenne.
Being that Columbus discovered the Americas on this day, It seems that the Native Americans need the spotlight as well. Here is a brief slideshow of some artwork produced by native americans, and some others that show tribute to their culture and style. This type of artwork is found all over the midwest and east coast, which is were the largest population of american indians still reside. These reservations are large parts of the desert and mountain areas which were set aside to appease them because the white man took the land they inhabited. Having spent a lot of time in Utah, and Arizona, I have grown to love the desert and the Native American presence and hope to never see their art and culture disappear entirely.
