24" x 36" Charcoal and PastelCalling the Ancestors, drawing by Cyndi Strid, was awarded 1st Place People’s Choice Award by the White Salmon Library Community Reads Project, Koobdooga, in March 2015.  It is a 24″ x 36″  beautiful charcoal and pastel native american art inspired drawing.  Our  community read and discussed the book, Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher: The Epic Life and Immortal Photographs of Edward Curtis, written by Timothy Egan.   This book inspired Cyndi Strid to merge the world views of our Indigenous People’s into our contemporary lives.  Our indigenous tribal people believed their ancestors were always available to them and could be called upon for advice, guidance and wisdom.  Given the state of our environment and social affairs, we may find indigenous values in our contemporary lives to be helpful.
