"Three weeks after I moved to the shores of Cayuga Lake, the local gas station was barricaded with trucks, police, and members of the local Cayuga Tribe. This event inspired me to explore the long history of the Cayuga Nation and the events that lead to the recent conflict within the tribe itself. Depending on which cover you open first you receive a different story. One side of the book tells the 'Now' story (current issues) and the other side tells the 'Then' story (history) of the tribe." — Artist's statement at the Vamp & Tramp Booksellers' website, viewed on August 5, 2016.
