    Well I think it sucks. How white people imagine Indians should look. However....I searched the artist up, and this guy has some pretty good stuff. A lot of his stuff is down there in Rockport, TX, and I don't think the reproductions on the internet equal seein the works in real life. I respect the painting you've posted for its mastery of color, form, composition and technique, (the artist has definitely got that down, don't know his bio but reminds me a lot of the Taos style) but nobody I know ever looked like that.
    Just like Texas in 1880.

    Actually steve71, I am old enough to know what Indians looked like and still know what they look like. I just look at my family. I was born in Oklahoma. One side of the family is out of the Choctaw Nation, other side Cherokee Nation. I have close affiliations with the Plains tribes; I lived with the Kiowas for awhile. I have listened to stories told by elders that were born in the late 1800's. So yeah, I think I'm pretty qualified to tell what an Indian looked like. Plus, there's tons of historical photos that document different tribal dress. Look up the Kiowa Ledger artists. Silverhorn, ah-goon, did some great work. I know his grandson, another fine artist. I ain't knockin this artist, cause he's got some cool stuff. Texas worked very hard to exterminate or run out their Indians a long time ago, so there's probably nobody left that actually remembers how they dressed or look down there.

    Cool and yeah we could be distantly related. Sides that, one of my great-grandpa's was born down near Houston. You ever get up to Oklahoma, try to attend a powwow, and you can see traditional dress. Most of it is based on 19th century dress, but just like anybody else they use what becomes available, so it's jazzed up with 20th century stuff, but it's still true to the culture. My ancestors would have jumped on a compound bow in a heartbeat. They managed to get repeating rifles before the soldiers did. I tried to do it but couldn't, so if you could post that link to that Rockport museum I think folks would like to see this guys work.

    A side note: Steve, are you aware that the Comanches in TX are the only native people that never (as a tribe) signed a peace treaty? The Spaniards so feared them that they offered free land to anyone that wanted it (you had to become a mexican citizen) between mexico and the rest of north America so there was a buffer between Comanches and Mexico. Read " Empire of the summer moon" Quana Parker and the Comanches. By S. C. Gwynne. VERY good read. TTC

    Think I got it. Go to www.simonmichaelgallery.com. You can see some of his paintings. Book Terry C mentioned is a good read. The Kiowas and Comanches considered themselves at peace with the US but considered Texas a whole nother country, so they figured they weren't violating any treaties by raiding a foreign country. I once sat on Quanah Parker's front porch in the evening and drank a beer. Quanah was long gone so he probably didn't care. His 'Star House' has been moved to Eagle Park in Cache, OK, along with some other historical buildings, Frank James' house among them. The park is closed now and I don't think they let anybody in there, except maybe by appointment.
    Just like Texas in 1880.
