Artwork Description:

this original is a colored pencil drawing depicting Seminole Tribe member Jake Tiger who is an educator of the tribes history, traditions, and language. This image is meant to depict a Son who continues to pass down knowledge and traditions to the younger generations of Seminoles to come. It's these people within our Indigenous tribes who keep our cultures alive, continuing to practice the traditions which keep our ancestors spirits and memories alive. A Warrior on the front lines of assimilation, Jake takes pride in speaking to other Natives and Non-Natives about the Seminole history, their removal from their homelands to Oklahoma, and the proud traditions of the Seminole Nation, so that future Son's of the Seminole continuously revive their ancestors spirits and legacy.
