The 4th of July has already passed this year, but here's my overdue celebration of it for 2015. Whenever one of these "patriotic all-American" holidays comes up, I'm always inspired to draw with a Native American theme in mind. You can't get more American than the people who settled this country first, can you?

Obviously there's a great deal of artistic license in this image. I know the Great Plains Natives hadn't acquired horses yet when the mammoths were still around. I also don't think there were many female warriors within historically documented Plains societies, but who knows what kind of gender roles prehistoric ones had in the preceding ~14,500 years? I simply wanted to draw a female Plains warrior with a warbonnet on horseback with mammoths ambling behind her.
