A nation is not conquered
Until the hearts of its women
are on the ground.
Then it is finished,
No matter how brave its warriors
Or how strong their weapons.
– Cheyenne proverb
Award-winning CA artist Howard Terpning captures the solemn pride – and tenderness – of a young Cheyenne mother. She is pictured in her everyday dress of doeskin, a cradleboard secured to her back by straps around her chest and shoulders. From her belt hangs a knife in an elaborately fringed and beaded sheath.
