On this #NationalNativeAmericanDay we highlight Potawatomi artist, Denny Haskew.
'Strength of the Maker right from its title... to the strength shown even in the toes, is a statement of how I view my very inner belief. Nature and all things natural have always been of the utmost importance to me all my life. Believing in, the Great Spirit, Buddha, Mohammed, the Mysterious One, is important. I feel they all exude the same message; a life of oneness, of love, of honesty and a source of emotional strength. Strength of the Maker is my visual version of how I see my Maker.' -DH
