“This is one of my favorite paintings because of the combination
of the location and the subject,” says James Bama. “I had the
chance to attend two different ceremonies this holy man performed.
He’s a Crow Indian and a member of the Whistling Water Clan.
The Crow are the only plains tribe with a clan system. I think
there are about ten different clans in the tribe and the
Whistling Water Clan is the largest. That makes him a very
important person in Crow society and an impressive subject
to paint.”
“The Holy City is a lava formation about eight miles from my
house. It is in the Bighorn National Forest, which leads into
Yellowstone National Park. The same volcanic activity that
created Yellowstone’s landscape formed these. They are very
dramatic. Putting the two together made a great deal of sense
to me because they are both such moving subjects. At first take,
one would think that they represent two very different
kinds of inspiration, but the more you think about it, the
more you realize they actually belong together.”
