|Drawing of Blackfoot Warrior I did when I was 11|
I tried really hard to read the date on the bottom of the scan, but I just cannot make it out. I've lost track of the original drawing.
I believe I drew this when I was about 11 or 12 years old. The title on it says "Eagle Calf, Montana Blackfoot Indian"
I don't know where I got the reference for it, most likely a book, or novel I was reading at the time. I remember being very enthralled with making this drawing, as I was so interested in Native American culture. Perhaps because I lived so long away from the American Mainland.
Little did I know back then that I would later meet and have friends who are members of the Montana Blackfoot. That a mentor of mine would be someone who lived with them, and that I myself would marry a member of the Cherokee Nation.
Not bad for a little blue-eyed white girl born in Asia. - Michele
