    Native American Heritage Committee 2009 Art Program at Carlow University

    NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE COMMITTEE
    19TH ANNUAL ART EXPOSITION
    We Shall Remain!
    2009 Arts Project
    “The Master of Life has appointed this place for us to light our fires and
    here we shall remain.” - Tecumseh Shawnee

    Despite centuries of encroachment, warfare, and neglect, Native American Indians have proved that we remain a vital force in the life of America.
    Native peoples have always adapted and when necessary fought back-- from the Wampanoags of New England, to Geronimo and his band of Chiricahuas, to Tecumseh, to the visionary Principal Chief of the Cherokees; John Ross during the Nu-No-Du-Na Tlo-Hi-Lu, “The Trail Where They Cried”, to the bold new leaders of the 1970s such as Russell Means & Clyde Bellecourt who
    harnessed the momentum of the civil rights movement to forge a pan-Indian identity and advocate organizations such A.I. M. (American Indian Movement), to current Native American Indian leaders
    and spokespersons such as Vine Deloria, John Echo-Hawk, Ada Deer, or Wilma Mankiller who today are striving to establish and hold onto rights for all Native American People.
