Locke honors the memories of his ancestors by using a double sheet dated 1898 pulled from the ledger of a Black Hills grocery store, a time and place so significant in Sioux history.
A warrior rides in from off the page, guided by an eagle. Two tipis in the background are depicted above him in this artful piece. Locke includes the sun in all his paintings, to commemorate the Battle of the Greasy Grass, which began at noon.
