Instead of documenting cross-cultural conflicts, in the Think Pink! series I wanted to portray those Native and European Americans who could find common ground. These instances of collaboration may be exceptions to the norm - and I do not want ot deny the genocide and oppression of Native peoples - but the positive interactions are worthy of our attention. I tend to paint specific individuals and historical incidents because understanding of Native American cultures is thwarted by the proliferation of grotesque generalities.
