Buffalo Medicine Keeper
William E. Weiss Memorial Fund Purchase
Regarded as one of the most eloquent and innovative Native American artists of the 1970s, T.C. Cannon (Kiowa-Caddo) played a pivotal role in helping change the direction of traditional Indian painting, characterized by stylized, outlined shapes with flat colors. Cannon concentrated on "Indian" themes and traditions but integrated modern artistic influences. Buffalo Medicine Keeper reflects Cannon's interest in the Art Deco-style patterns in German artist Winold Reiss's backgrounds and borders. Cannon developed his own decorative motifs to enhance his images, incorporating dots in this painting to symbolize the way the Native American sundancers viewed the world. As part of the sundance ceremony, participants were required to stare at the sun, which resulted in "spots before the eyes."
