Description : Cuthand began to paint shirts in 1983 (the dress images began in 1985), after a period of searching for a means of expressing her own experience of being Indian. ... The image of the shirt or tunic comes from a religious movement that developed amongst the plains Indians in the nineteenth century. This movement was known as the __Ghost Dance Religion__. ... A central part of the __Ghost Dance Religion__ was the ritual __Ghost Dance__, in which believers would dance for days on end, as a means of observing their God and intensifying their hope for the promised day. The Sioux, whose destitution and oppression was amongst the worst of the plains Indians, became fervent followers of the __Ghost Dance Religion__. Like the northern Cheyenne and Arapaho, the Sioux adopted the ritual __Ghost Shirt__ .. which was worn in the dance. ... For Cuthand, the __Ghost Shirt__ evokes the complex legacy of her people's survival. ... Cuthand's shirts, and the dress images that follow them, recall for her the souls of her ancestors and her relatives and friends, as well as inanimate objects she finds important or significant. In this sense, they contain a trace of the __Ghost Dance__, which promised reunification with those who have passed from this world. And they are also, in their own quiet way, a form of resistance to the hegemony of white culture. They keep alive the memory of her past, her stories, her friends; and in doing so celebrate the spiritual and cultural tradition they have managed to preserve despite two hundred years of oppression and forced assimilation.
