George Longfish (Seneca-Tuscarora, b. 1942)

LIGHTLY SALTED 1990
mixed media 19" x 16"

"This artwork is a political statement of a people who have endured and survived. The People (tribal Native Americans) have become the symbols of America's conquest with very little or no regard for Indians as people or humans. The unique quality that makes Native Americans different from other ethnic groups in America is and will always be the land. For all who have been at war with America, they have always been given the chance to retain their land and their self-respect, not so with the 'Indian.'"
