Trouble Down South Art Challenge
Painting No. 3
Native American Tomahawk
Here is another painting on the theme of Native Americans. Their use of the tomahawk was pivotal to their survival. To make their tomahawks, Native Americans would use stones attached to hand-hewn wooden handles and held together with strips of rawhide. Uses for the tomahawk would range from chopping to cutting to hunting. In many cases the tomahawk would be used as a weapon.
The Native American Tomahawk painting was inspired by a poem I wrote titled “Revolt in the Cherokee Nation” that is included in my collection of short stories in Trouble Down South and Other Stories. “Revolt in the Cherokee Nation” is a poem briefly chronicling the incident in which African-American slaves revolt against the Native-American slaveholders in the Cherokee Nation.
