A Reverence For The - Native American Indians and the Ivory Billed Woodpecker by Mary Louise Holt
  A Reverence For The  (2006)
Subject: Native American Indians and the Ivory Billed Woodpecker
Dimensions (inches): 24 x 48
Medium: Oil on Canvas
Description: When Teddy Roosevelt first saw the Ivory Billed Woodpecker he said, 'Lord God what a bird!' For many years after it has been referred to as the 'Lord God bird'. The Native Americans believed in numerous spirits and subordinate deities. Almost all animals and the elements were looked upon as spirits. Most of the Indians believed that one or more of these spirits had been particularly given to them to assist them and make them prosper. This, they claimed, had been made known to them in a dream.

Along the banks of the Ohio River, starting around Henderson Kentucky and continuing south, massive Bald Cypress trees thrived for centuries. The wood was often used to create dug out canoes. Traveling sometimes with their families Native Americans exchanged hides for clothing and other useful goods with the European traders.
