Indian Paintbrush blanketed the ground, 
a grizzly bear crossed our path, 
a herd of bull elk grazed 
in the majestic moonlight 
& 1 massive herd buffalo bull 
looked us straight in the eye.

"The Poor Boy and The Mud Pony" Traveling Exhibit
Travels North Dakota 2013
I wish to communicate the soul of First Nation artistic expression and the
spiritual essence of our people.
As a little guy I remember us kids gathering around grandpa with our popcorn, eagerly awaiting his first words which set the stage to the rest of the story. 

One will experience the interpretive illustrations of my grandfather’s story, “The Poor Boy and the Mud Pony”.

I have created a traveling exhibit, “The Poor Boy and the Mud Pony, An Arikara Perspective” that celebrates Arikara traditions which is interwoven with morals and character building. 

I have chosen to illustrate the children's book in the traditional 1800’s ledger art style; it is indicative of the life altering changes that the Northern Plains tribes were subject to at the hands of their oppressors lending to the idea of transitions. 

The themes found within “The Poor Boy and the Mud Pony” are dreams, leadership and caring for Creation.  In a time when true leadership is disappearing within our societies, it is critical for our young people to be able to recognize, understand and value true leadership, as well as be empowered to believe in themselves and have dreams.
