Reflections of Injustice: Haudenosaunee Lacrosse

Reflections of Injustice
Artwork and comments by Mohawk artist Tracy Thomas

PHOTO: This is Everson Museum pic of my new mirror painting titled "Reflections of Injustice" my statement on what happened to the Iroquois Nationals this summer. This my statement on what happened to the Iroquois Nationals in July of 2010:
It was a sad feeling, that the team didn't get to go the World Lacrosse Games.
But to us they're heroes of what are ancestors fought for ... our survival, that
is why we are still here today. They instilled pride into our children, and that
they can never take away. Our sovereignty, meant more than a trophy, it was a great day for all indigenous peoples, that we showed the World, who we are, The Haudenosaunee-People of the Longhouse.

Also thanks to Mike Greenlar for letting me use his photograph, to make
this picture, for the exhibition.
