North American Indians a fan
GIN GIN local artist Gary Woodfield last Friday had a special visitor from the North American Indian Federation Group.
Mr Woodfield receives interest from around the world on a weekly basis wanting his work.
“It is an honour to be approached from overseas visitors, and doing a painting based on General Custer’s last stand told from a ‘Native Indian perspective.’
“This painting will help raise funds for research, curing children with disabilities within the Indian Nations.”
Mr Woodfield said he likes to help charitable organizations abroad when the opportunity does arise.
“This is going to be a special painting not only for me but also the organisation I am working with.
His plan is to have the painting completed for his art exhibition in Gin Gin, June and July.
Mr Woodfield spent time with Dern Fallon, known as Running Deer.
Mr Fallon is Cheyenne, his great-great-grandfather fought at the Battle of Little Big Horn in 1876.
“This will be a challenging project and one I am looking forward to completing,” he said.
