October 20th 2010: Karonienhawi

This illustration is actually part of my uni project but it took so long I thought I'd just use it as part of my one a day work. The woman depicted is Matilda Joslyn Gage who was an activist in America in the 1800s. She had many causes including Pro-Life, Womens rights, the Underground Railway and Native American Rights. The Native American part is obviously applied here & the name Karonienhawi is the name that the Iroquois tribe, who she spent time with, gave to her. It means 'She who holds up the sky'.
