The Way of Their Ancestors

The Way of Their Ancestors

Oil on linen
56” x 58”

For the Plains Indian, the buffalo was the primary source for food, shelter, clothing and tools.
If buffalo were scarce, a tribe would travel great distances to reach the herds. 
Hunts took place in the spring, summer and autumn.

Replaying a ritual established by their forefathers, this band of Lakota set out on trails
establishedlong ago.  Reaching across time, the ancients will help them to be
well-provisioned for the coming winter.
