  "Two years ago my husband and I took a trip across the United States from New York to Los Angeles. During that 6,000 mile journey (round trip) we stopped at numerous gas stations and curio shops. What I discovered were a variety of Indian toys and images of the 'Indian' for sale. These were the same toys I remember seeing as a young child along the Turquoise Trail (Route 66) and it is these toys that young people today view as the Native American. Since that point I started 'collecting' these images."
