Harmony Tapestry Scarf

- 55 X 55 inches

Cozy-up in our oversized tapestry scarf. It was designed by indigenous artist Francis Horne Sr., whose work retells an ancestral connection to the land that has been respectfully lived on for thousands of years. Printed with a bold array of colors from nature, this soft woven fabric makes a wonderful accessory, or an arresting art piece to display on a wall.
From 1774 until about 1832, treaties between individual sovereign American Indian nations and the United States were negotiated to establish borders and prescribe conditions of behavior between the parties.
The form of these agreements was nearly identical to the Treaty of Paris, which ended the Revolutionary War between the U.S. and Great Britain. The negotiations resulted in a mutually signed pact that had to be approved by the U.S. Congress. Nontribal citizens were required to have a passport to cross sovereign Indian lands.
From 1832 until 1871, American Indian nations were considered domestic, dependent tribes. In 1871, the House of Representatives ceased to recognize individual tribes within the U.S. as independent nations with which the U.S. could contract by treaty. This ended the nearly 100-year-old practice of treaty-making between the U.S. and American Indian tribes.
The online exhibit "Rights of Native Americans" includes a visual timeline of the history of American Indian treaties and Native American activism to defend tribal sovereignty.
