Bison Poised to become the National Mammal

Of the EarthBison may be getting the recognition they deserve. After surviving decades of aggressive hunting that dwindled their numbers near the point of extinction, a Congressional bill seeks to establish the American bison as the national mammal of the United States. The bill, which was passed by the Senate in December and the House this week, is the result of a five-year campaign by conservation and Native American groups to get some recognition for the hulking plains-dwellers. Bison have survived much worse than the human threat: as a species more than 10,000 years old, they're a relic from the Ice Age that managed to survive what mammoths did not.

Tirawa Shows Himself through the Beasts

Tirawa Shows Himself through the Beasts/30x40/ oil on canvas

"In the beginning of all things, wisdom and knowledge were with the animals, for Tirawa, the One Above, did not speak directly to man. He sent certain animals to tell men that he showed himself through the beast, and that from them, and from the stars, and the sun, and the moon should man learn... all things tell of Tirawa."—Eagle Chief Letakots-Lesa, Pawnee Tribe 

This quote was the inspiration for the painting that was showcased by CFA Gallery this past summer and continues to inspire. Paintings can be purchased on the Available Paintings page.
