The Title: Broken Promises

The Storyline: Susan showed me a t-shirt about 'homeland security since columbus arrived', American Indians with native weapons. That spawned the idea, but it developed while carving into my thoughts of the dreams of the future American Indians had for their children being broken by the europeans arriving and destroying their culture. Thus the animal spirits joining the Indians on the dream catcher. Wish i had better images of this one, i really liked the way the Chief's headdress turned into a buffalo in the back, and the females hair style turned into a Ram, the Young Man's into a bird... meant to represent their animal spirits.

In the image below you can barely see the animal spirits visible form the rear.
