Part 3 of 3:
History IS sensitive, this happened and continues to happen. i.e. the Red Power movement of the 1960s and 70s and STANDING ROCK! I'm well aware that Lenape did not live in Teepees and for you to assume that me, someone with Cherokee roots, whose wife is also Cherokee, would use a teepee as a symbol out of ignorance or for personal gain is completely absurd and hurtful. My work and message is CULTURE APPRECIATION and my intent is to draw attention to our history and the price of freedom. The star filled sky and the wolf are a tribute to my dead dog and play on what the sky which the building now blocks could have looked like before we built our cities and blocked out the night with our light pollution. How is any of this offensive or insensitive? What you are accusing me of is ignorance and I find it personally offensive and borderline slander. I'd appreciate if you'd retract some of your statements, and remove the photographs of my murals, now that you have a better understanding.
I will continue to push the messaging that I think is important and you can continue to criticize but next time you use an artist as your PAWN to push a political agenda, please do some research or give that artist a reasonable amount of time to respond.
