Abstract:

"A humourous and informative presentation of McMasters' 16 piece series. In response to the 1990 Oka confrontation between soldiers and Mohawk "Warriors," Cree artist Gerald McMaster began a series of 16 paintings in playful response to the absurd pairing of a profession (cowboy) and with a race of people (Indian). Apart from their great visual appeal, the paintings are distinguished by the artist's use of humour to address serious issues: the viewer is challenged to reflect on a variety of important concerns and see them from a Native perspective."--Pub. website.
