Silk, cotton, resist, and dye. Hand painted and machine quilted.

This quilt was part of the Stars and Stripes Forever Invitational Show in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This quilt is my response to a very disturbing part of American history which resulted in the removal of thousands of Native Americans from Georgia to Oklahoma. One of these Indians was my ancestor.
