This piece is a stop-motion video. The video takes the data from the Library of Congress about US-Tribal treaties and shows, one step at a time, the march of the US across North America from 1785 to 1894. Using plastic toy cowboys and Indians to represent the tribes and the United States, the colors slowly change indicating the removal of native from their land in all but a few locations.
