Native American Spiritual Calendar
At a time when Native American nations across America faced destruction, the Ghost Dance religion sprang forth to offer hope. It was in the late 1800s that the spiritual connections with the dance began. The authorities at the time completely misunderstood the Ghost Dance which wasn’t anything new, they completely misunderstood most of anything that the Native People lived by. Because of the misguided understanding there was a massacre of Sioux men, women, and children at Wounded Knee in 1890. Artist, J D Challenger, gives us some remarkable paintings in this calendar that just might renew the bonds of strength and dignity of the Native Americans to their most important history.

The Ghost Dance period had its beginnnings with the Paiute “Prophet” Wovoka and spread quickly through the Plains tribes and beyond.
The paintings of JD Challenger tell a story if you look at them closely. A story of a People, the First Peoples of North America, that has a rich heritage and an even richer tradition.
