"The Plains Indian had an intimate
knowledge and deep respect for the animals that shared his environment. He
especially coveted the courage, strength and hunting skills of animals like
the eagle, wolf, and bear. By wearing the fur, feathers and claws of these
great hunting animals he hoped to possess a part of their 'spirit'. I've
illustrated a Blackfoot Indian, beside a cold mountain stream, who has truly
wrapped himself in the 'Spirit of the Grizzly.'"
"Out of the mist rising
A young Indian comes riding,
Riding though bear country
It is ealry spring, but there is snow on the gound
And a storm in the air.
The Indian wears a bearskin robe.
His name is Brave Bear.
Brave Bear has always tried to be like his name,
Strong, intelligent, brave.
He wishes that his guardian spirit could be
The grandfather of all bears,
The great grizzly.
Does Brave Bear
get his wish?"
