I made this image in collaboration with National Geographic Photographer Aaron Huey in support of www.honorthetreaties.org and their efforts to educate the public about Native American Treaty rights. This is our third project together and was built directly off of the mural we did on the Baracudda wall on Melrose last Fall. See the full installation here. Our first poster project went up in a dozen American cities in 2011.
You can see more of Aaron’s 7 year documentary of the Pine RIdge Indian Reservation in the cover story of National Geographic magazine this month and an extended essay on his website.
Proceeds from this print go to fund the “Honor The Treaties” awareness campaign. We will be releasing a 24×36 offset print on thin paper to both sell as a signed print and to sell unsigned in packs of ten for public display of your choosing. More details soon. Thanks for caring.
