"I met Saginaw Grant at a Haskell pow wow and subsequently received his permission to create his portrait. After meeting extensively with Haskell leaders, Manny King and Dan Wildcat, we came to the conclusion it would be a great opportunity to bring attention to issues of importance to Indian activists seeking redress for the loss of tribal sovereignty and poverty on many reservations.
When we invited Saginaw to the field we discovered his involvement with Indian youth issues dealing with addiction for his tribe and the larger Native American population. Along with a number of students and instructors from nearby Haskell, he enjoyed his helicopter ride over the twenty seven acre image, carved out of volunteer wheat. Photographer Daniel Dancer choreographed four hundred students from a nearby school to perform as beads on the headband the following week."
