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.
