"Whoosh" 18" by 24 "by Deborah Spears Moorehead

Created on August 18, 2015 "Whoosh " signifies the strength and beauty of an Indigenous women's power and resilience to stand strong through many of life's storms. This image is of a Narragansett woman, whose name is Leah, as she danced in a contest at a Brown University Powow. This piece won in 2017 The National Congress for the American Indian Art Contest Award. Leah is in her fancy shawl, dance style regalia. While she danced, a strong wind, and rain storm appeared that caused objects to fly in the air, tents to topple over, and sent people scrambling in a desperate run for cover. However, Leah stayed steadfast, strong and statuesque as if her every step was rooted into the Earth and it would take a much more powerful storm to effect her dance style, steps or concentration. Iridescent ribbon colors from her fancy shawl, blew in a North Easterly direction as if her shawl's ribbons were mimicking the colors of the wind.
