Artwork Description:

Traditional Choctaw Stickball player, watercolor and colored pencil on watercolor paper. The Choctaw game of Stickball was always more than just a game. Also called the "Little Brother of War", it is a way of resolving disputes, strengthening personal empowerment and forming alliances. I chose to use historical drawings from George Caitlin to recreate the beautiful dress of these players. "Choctaw Super Hero" is the embodiment of a strong, resilient warrior working towards his goal of personal and group empowerment; for without hope, strength and community we are weak. A,Chahta Sia!
