Native America artist Jeffrey Veregge's work presents a Native American twist on popular comic book heroes. Jeffry is from the Suquamish and Duwamish tribes and grew up on the Little Boston reservation in Washington.
According to his website:
My origins are not supernatural, nor have they been enhanced by radioactive spiders. I am simply a Native American artist, whose creative mantra in best summed up with a word from my tribe's own language as: “taʔčaʔx̣ʷéʔtəŋ” which means “get into trouble”.
A member of the Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe, I was raised and spent a majority of my life on our reservation known locally as Little Boston, which is located near Kingston, Washington. Although I am enrolled there, I am also both of Suquamish and Duwamish tribal ancestry.
