A few years ago while walking down a street in Minneapolis I saw a poster depicting an angry poodle with a Mohawk-it was a funny enough that it made an impression on me and every once in a while I will think of it and laugh.
The other day in a blog I mentioned that Annie’s supporters were not poodles or lap dogs, but rez dogs who weren’t going to let go-kind of got me thinking about that poodle with a Mohawk and I had a mental image of a rez dog mad as hell and looking to kick some ass and take names-one fed up with all the celebrity books and ruminations.
Not being able to draw, and envious of those with a such a talent, I explained the idea to one who is known to us as sister who is very accomplished in the arts and asked if she could breathe life into it, and as you can see in the attached drawing she did exactly that.
I had more or less entitled it Rez Dog-mad as hell and not going to take it anymore, but another involved in the fight for justice and closure for Annie Mae suggested Mad Dog with a good AIM-and so it is.
Mad Dog or Rez Dog-he’s had enough and expressing an opinion held by a growing number.
We have an idea to market it through CafePress as a poster, t-shirt, or something of that nature with all proceeds going to indigenous causes.
Anyone who would care to is welcome to post such a cause or if they too have a talent might consider doing something similar, maybe even an Ebook if they have a literary talent-it’s more than about the amount, it’s about doing what one can.
The CafePress idea never came to fruition after looking at their fee. I know someone who went that way and they made something like twenty cents on a cup or shirt, not sure which.
The poodle poster mentioned can be found by typing in Poodle With a Mohawk in your search window. The initials JFAM on the dog tag stands for Justice for Annie Mae.
