This hand-pulled print on paper by Dewayne Mathews (Cherokee/Chickasaw) is one example of the many drawings, paintings and prints that will be for sale at the Indian Market. This piece is called "Continuum, Mound Builder Heritage." Mathews, one of the foremost Native American printmakers in the country, is one of a growing number of Native American artists who research their early culture for inspiration and accuracy.
