Discovery to Genocide


I first made this print when I finally read Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States, as the opening chapter floored me. At the same time this beautiful bird, the Quetzal, kept appearing in my life, and I wanted to make a print of it to examine the different interpretations of history depending on perspective, as well as celebrate Indigenous struggle. I redesigned the layers to make a new version of this print, and in the ongoing energy of Idle No More I hope this reminder of historical perspective continues to resonate.
