"Tatonka" has been a painting I've had in my mind for a very long time. Learning about Bison as an Icon in American History, these animals once roamed North America in the tens of millions. Being in such abundance these animals were a critical part of Native American's culture with each part of the bison providing something for their way of life.
After dwindling numbers beginning in the 19th century, more recently populations have been re introduced using conservation management. I wanted to showcase these 3 bison standing strong as "Guardian's of the park" almost.
"Tatonka - the lakota word for buffalo"
"The buffalo is a symbol of self-sacrifice; it gives until there is nothing left. This was imitated by the people in their lives. To be generous and give what you have to others in need, or to honor them, is one of the most highly respected ways of behaving."
