I was inspired to do this project by my involvement in the South Dakota Peace and Justice Center and their efforts for reconciliation between European Americans and American Indians. I researched and compiled a body of stories and then worked with Dakota storyteller Pamela Greenhill Kaizen in retelling the stories into a consistent voice.  I produced a series of 12 four by four foot mixed media canvases to accompany the stories. Ten canvases are in the collection of the Aberdeen public school system, Aberdeen, SD.  One canvas in the collection of Dacotah Prairie Museum, Aberdeen, SD. A book version of this project was produced but is now out of print (used copies can be found).
