i have published two books Salmon Spirit and First peoples, you can buy them on Amazon and hold an associate of arts from SUNY FM and graduated Summa Cum Laude from the university of new Mexico in indigenous history. i write a graphic novel called Yapa , set in a fantasy world that takes inspiration from native mythology.. in tone and style it is sort of like Disney meets kemino anime, with some adult humor and romantic comedy tropes. it centers around a race of ferret people called the kushtaka after the Tlingit myth, , in Yapa they come from a realm called TuRR, a lush tropical world with the environment of Hawaii or Okinawa. my main characters are kolohe an enchanting kushtaka girl , Jet a working office stiff on vacation and captain kit, kushtaka incompetent pirate comic relief . the other creatures native to TuRR are meant to resemble the Jim Henson , Avatar or star wars prequel style of creature creation . Sometimes dignified sometimes cute ,wacky or fetishy , always a labor of love .
oh none at all i was going to get around to drawing him when i return to the indigenous people drawings. i did not start with him because he tends to be an over done subject for native American drawings
