Manataka American Indian Council







"Woodland  Warriors" limited edition collection is an authentic representation of warriors from four woodland tribes, the Ottawa, Ojibwa Chippewa, Wyandot Huron, and the Potawatomi.  As a two-year collaborative effort between researchers Herb Clevenger (Shawnee) and Joe Scott, the collection is an accurate depiction of the hairstyles, tattooing, body painting, ornaments, and  jewelry styles of the tribes in the 18th century prior to European influence. Research was extremely difficult because these were oral cultures and few details of their actual appearance was recorded by early settlers.  When tribes merged, various cultures blended with each other and strong European influence so that  stereo-typing began almost immediately.

Ottawa 1700-1750








Joe and Herb enlisted the artistic talent  of Paula "Peaceful Wind' Stahl, an award winning artist, to illustrate their research and vision. The Manataka American Indian Council is proud to present these four superb prints that may be purchased separately. 


Each print is 9" x 12" and expertly reproduced on heavy weight museum quality acid-free paper.  Each print in this exquisite collection is numbered and signed by the artist.  The collection normally sells for $150, but is offered here for only $99.98 or $29.95 each plus shipping and handling.

Peaceful Wind has been a privately commissioned artist for over 20 years. Her American Indian heritage found a strong voice in her beautiful renditions of early peoples. Her goal is to educate children and adults about the true culture of 'the people of the land' and help dissolve misinformation and stereo-typed images of American Indians. Mixed by blood, Cherokee by choice, Peaceful Wind lives in the upper Appalachian Mountains on land that has been in her family for seven generations. Inspired by her ancestral lands and teachings of her grandfather, she is a disabled single mother who now devotes her talent to these goals.
