About the Artwork:
The Rising Sun’s background is reminiscent of the Great Plains. The Great Plains are home to many Native American tribes including my own, the Blackfeet Nation (Amskapi Pikuni). Before the plains were westernized, the Blackfeet were nomadic people and roamed the plains hunting buffalo. A buffalo’s skull is featured in the center of the plains. The buffalo was the source of life for the Blackfeet and it was used for food, clothing, shelter, and other applications.
