2015 Ghost Dance Calendar



The beautiful artwork of J.D. Challenger captures the bonds of strength and dignity linking Native Americans to their history.

In the late 1800s, the Ghost Dance religion promised hope and resurrection at a time when Native American nations across America faced destruction. Misunderstood by authorities, the Ghost Dance sparked the savage attack on Sioux men, women, and children at Wounded Knee in 1890. Through his paintings, in Ghost Dance, JD Challenger renews the bonds of strength and dignity linking Native Americans to their history.  Regular Price $15.95. Save 20% through October 1, 2014
