Third from the Hindsight Series of mixed media work. Inspired from her research of Native Americans before and after assimilation, this piece represents the deep-rooted customs of the Cheyenne, causing deep instrospection by the viewer. 

Cheyenne women once sewed elk’s teeth onto their dresses to show what good hunters the men of their family were. The average number of teeth on a traditional garment was about 300. In 1920, it was no longer possible to hunt elk in large numbers, so dressmakers used artificial teeth carved from bone.
