Original watercolor 50″ x 17″
For My People was created from a photo that I took at the Crow Fair Pow Wow, better known as the Pow Wow of a Thousand Teepees. With her permission, I photographed the dancer as she came in the Grand Entry and during the women’s traditional dance. She Dances for her people and each stomp of her feet is a prayer for her people from her heart. She is holding an eagle feather prayer fan which she raises to the heavens at the sound of a certain drum beat.
