Home Truths: Developing Ideas

Looking in to the native Americans was really interesting as they see home as living at one with nature and have many traditions and rituals that are carried down from generation to generation and this is mainly through story telling. There is also the fact that they were forced out of there rightful homes by the Europeans and put in to reservation most of which were in poor condition.

The more i researched the more i found that the native Americans were very often misrepresented, and there true history was often brushed over so with my plates i wanted to represent the true story and illustrate just some of the things that they had to suffer. But i also wanted to layer it with the more romanticized vision of native Americans to show the contrast.
