This image is a detail from a painting inspired by Catlin and is a part of my Native Americana series. As a native Kansan myself – I live on the edge of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation as well – so I've always been drawn to the cultural history of the Kansa (or Kanza, or Kaw nation) people. Their language named my home state and home town (Topeka).
