It struck me that that nameless chief on the 14-cent stamp ought to be someone. There have been so many great and inspiring leaders within Native American history. As Geronimo had so long been interred in federal captivity I thought it an interesting way to perhaps set that spirit free. So I created a piece with Geronimo emerging from the 14-cent stamp using Ben Wittick's iconic 1887 photograph of Goyathlay as source material. To me, it’s a small way of acknowledging one hero out of many, and canonizing this revolutionary spiritual leader.
