“This elk hide is a prayer for the ecosystem to be healthy again, like when Plains Indians were self-sufficient.

It is to show that every element is connected to one another and need each other. The future depends on that connection.

The impact of the human being is the greatest.  So let’s work for understanding, balance, respect, honesty and comprehension, so that God’s creation can be with us for the next thousand years to come.”

-Teanna (Cheyenne/Crow)
