2022 NWAC Logo

Artist: Jon Olney Shellenberger

Owner: Native Anthro

"I went with the Thunderbird petroglyph located at Columbia Hills. I wanted something that reflected power. At a time when we are completely without power to control our daily lives due to COVID-19, I thought it a good time to reflect on powers greater than ourselves. We, as Natives, have to learn things throughout our lives and therefore are in a constant state of learning. Even though we may not understand all things such as all petroglyphs or their meaning, they are there so that one day they will have meaning in our lives. To our elders, it wasn't about understanding everything. It was about understanding the right things at the right time. That is what Tribe's are trying to protect, the potential to understand and protect those opportunities for future generations."
