Over the weekend a couple of the artists involved with the Honor the Treaties collective, Jaque Fragua and Cheyenne Randall, completed a beautiful mural in Art Alley – Rapid City, South Dakota.

The mural reads “Protect the Sacred: Honor our women, our children, our culture.”

The piece coincided with The Unity Concert which was held in nearby Piedmont, SD. You might notice the same female image in the mural was used in the concert poster, also designed by Cheyenne Randall.

The Unity Concert is meant to be a gathering of members of the Pte Oyate (Buffalo Nation, also called the Great Sioux Nation), artists, performers and concerned global citizens committed to educating and raising support for the Black Hills Initiative. They believe that the only way for the United States of America to be truly great is to honor the treaties and restore the guardianship of the Black Hills to the Great Sioux Nation.

For more information on the artists and how you can be involved in the cause, please visit Honor the Treaties.
