First Nations Seeker

I just wanted to share with you a wonderful Native American resource. It is the First Nations Seeker: A Directory of North American Indigenous Portal Websites. It also includes online maps of all tribes across the continent.

This is really a wonderful and quite thorough resource for anyone seeking out information on Native History--and would also be helpful for educational purposes. To visit the site just click on the image above and it will take you directly there.

Valley of the Rosebud

I was in the mood for creating some digital art today. So I found a Native American Photo that inspired me and had some fun with it. This was the result.

Valley of the Rosebud

This original photo is entitled, 'The Valley of the Rosebud,' and was taken circa 1905 by renowned photographer, Edward S. Curtis. It is described by the Library of Congress as depicting a "Cheyenne Indian, wearing warbonnet headdress, on horseback at a pool of water."

Navaho Smile

The original Native American photo in this digital art is from the Edward S. Curtis Collection at the Library of Congress. It is titled, 'Navaho Smile,' and it was taken circa 1904.

I adore this photo of this beautiful Native woman, who truly smiles from within. So I had to share it with you here.
