Cold Morning

This scratchboard piece depicts a Sarsi Indian known as Adi-Tanni or Two Guns. The original photograph was taken as a part of a study by Edward Curtis in 1926. The Sarsi Indians are native of the Northwest region and are now living on a reservation in Alberta Canada. They were first seen living along the North Saskatchewan River living in buffalo hid tepees. The stone face and nostalgic stare of Two Guns has made him an iconographic figure of the Sarsi people and the Native American.
