Thanks for the support. Your exactly right.
And the background is from an antique I found in a thrift store or dumpster diving I don't remember. I'm always looking for cool stuff.

I could see why people would thin this insensitive. But I actually really like it- it's a tribute to the original Americans, and even for what they are today. I know Native Americans of today don't get equal treatment even now, and that is depressing, and their history with the Europeans that originally came here is far from a happy one, but despite all that, I still find this a lovely piece of artwork. <3

Seem's respectful enough to me.

These were the First People. America is theirs. If there is any symbol we should be using to represent our heritage, it is the Native American.
