Indigenous Warrior

The Indian Headdress with its flowing feathers has been a symbol of Indigenous people and I wanted to design a NW styled headdress using our forms and proudly proclaiming our heritage.

There is no rigid definition of what makes a group Indigenous, but to outline a few characteristics that usually define an Indigenous group:

● We are descended from the pre-colonial/pre-invasion inhabitants of our region.
● We maintain a close tie to our land in both our cultural and economic practices.
● We suffer from economic and political marginalization as a minority group.
● A group is considered Indigenous if it defines itself that way.
