An iconic poster by Ernesto Yerena created for Honor the Treaties.

In our continuing look at the work being created and given freely by HonorTheTreaties.org, we bring you the poster below by Ernesto Yerena (Xicano/Yaqui), one of the first works produced for the project. Based on an Aaron Huey photograph, the simple image of a young Lakota girl with her arms raised to the sky complements the three-word imperative that serves as the orgaization's name. As the artists' collective has grown, it's put out a wide variety of images addressing a range of issues, but few can rival this one's immediacy and visual punch.
