Description: “The year 2011 marked the 135th anniversary of the Battle of the Little Big Horn, or as the Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho called it, the Battle of the Greasy Grass. My husband and I visited the battleground and walked on its grassy hills years before it was closed to the public by the National Park Service. As I watched news programs about the closure which included interviews with several national experts and members of the Native American tribes, I became very moved by the historic events, including the aftermath, in which US troops murdered native peoples for many years. I painted Bones LBH to remind me and any viewer of the attempted genocide by the American military.”
