About the Artist - Carole Bourdo

 

Carole, who was born in 1938, spent ten years in close association with the Chippewa people some 50 miles south of her native Chicago.  These early, formative years left an indelible print and she fondly remembers the old Chief Evergreen.  

 

Carol's work is not limited to traditional presentation on canvas and art board. She has painted scenery on cabanas, illustrated a children's book, and painted a 40 foot eagle on Colorado Springs Bi-Centennial Building in 1976.

Many years ago, Carole was given her name during lengthy ceremonies conducted by Chief Old Person, at the Northern Plains Museum.  She was given the name, Ma-Ew-Yakee, Wolf Woman.  

 

Recognizing the need for authenticity, Carole studies people and animals in their own habitat. She attends and participates in Indian Powwows, historic Indian and Mountain Man Rendezvous. She has traveled to Alaska to study and photograph the grizzly and eagle in their natural habitat.

 

She has conducted research on the Indian tribes at the Anthropology Archives of the Smithsonian Institute and has done research on the Bald and Golden eagles at the National Eagle Research Center where three of the prints are on permanent display.

She is a strong supporter of the Native American Rights Fund and has participated on the National Support committee.

Carole's ability to blend absolute reality with spiritual essence is without peer. She is a great talent with complete dedication to her field and a tireless proponent of her work and her belief.

 

Note: Carole Bourdo is not a member of a federally recognized tribe.
