    "They made us many promises, more than I can remember. But they kept but one - They promised to take our land and they took it." Chief Red Cloud

    This print is a tribute to those who supported the Standing Rock Souix in their struggle against the Dakota Access Pipeline. The central photograph in the print is Chief Red Cloud, who fought against the US military starting in 1866 in what was known as “Red Cloud’s War.” He is a symbol of Native American traditional values and the struggle to for Aboriginal rights.

    The image of protestor on the top left is from Brazil, and the image on the top right is from France; illustrating the international scope of the issue. On the bottom left the protestors are trying to stop earth movers from working on the pipeline. The image on the bottom right is the police response to a peaceful protest. The border is a traditional design from a Plains Native American parfleche.


In addition to traditional Kwakiutl designs, David has created Contemporary Indigenous prints that represent the issues and history of our time. He believes that Northwest Native American traditional art is a foundation to build upon, not a boundary to restrain creativity..
