Smithsonian Blog: Steven Clevenger on Photographing Native American Veterans

Looks like an interesting angle on the subject of American Indians in the military. I like the last part of the interview, where Clevenger’s work seems to challenge the mentality of the “Indian warrior” stereotype.

About Me

I am a freelance artist living in Arkansas, US, specializing in historical portraits of American Indians. I blog about the portrayal and influence of Native Americans in art, history, and the media.

I am fascinated by history and world cultures, ancient and modern, and particularly indigenous peoples. My other interests include wildlife ecology, environmental issues & sustainability, journalism, photography, web design & development. I enjoy music and reading (see my book list here).

You can see some of my pastel work, and my drawings in charcoal and graphite, by visiting my online Gallery.
