Black Elk's Great Grandson
by James Bama
Clifton DeSerca, a Sioux, lives and works in the modern world but
has strong ties to the last days of the free-roaming horseback Native
American of the plains. His great-grandfather was Black Elk, a Sioux
holy man whose autobiography is considered one of the most important
pieces of Native American literature. As a young man, Black Elk
participated in the battle of the Little Big Horn. In his older
years, he told his story to John G. Neihardt who translated it into
the classic Black Elk Speaks. DeSerca serves his people
by being involved in a reservation outreach program working with
alcoholics. He is portrayed here wearing a Sioux headdress and a
historic shirt from the trading-post period.

Waiting for the Grand Entry
by James Bama
by Bev Doolittle
"Horses are such social animals and seem to emulate human behavior.
Whatever their pecking order or whatever they may be communicating
to each other, I always wonder what is going on," says Bev
Doolittle, who captures a moment at a crossroads where horses have
called an impromptu meeting. "Regardless of the space they
have to roam, horses have nonetheless come from all corners of their
world to gather like neighbors meeting over the backyard fence or
a coffee klatch on a Sunday morning."

Speaking Through Stones
Bev Doolittle, who gained such renown for reproductions of her original
camouflage paintings, now pleases art lovers once again in the form
of new, original, hand-pulled, stone lithographs. The imagery reflects
the artists love of horses, passion for the natural world
and her affinity for the Native Americans spiritual relationship
to the land. With some editions set at as few as 20 pieces, these
original lithos are already rare. Stone lithographs
are regarded as originals because they are not reproductions of
existing art. Lithography literally means writing on stone.
An image is drawn in reverse on stone and is then translated to
the paper through the hand-inking process. Only once this process
is complete does the artwork we see exsist. To learn more about
