Description


In August 2004, Chickasaw artist Mike Larsen approached Chickasaw Nation leaders with the idea to honor his tribe’s living elders. Accompanied by his wife, Martha, he began a creative process that turned into a personal journey, leading to the twenty-four remarkable paintings reproduced in this volume, accompanied by narratives based on interviews by Martha Larsen.
