Letter from Wyandotte Chief Leaford Bearskin
I feel kinda strange including a document like this,
but because of all the pretendNDNs and fraudulent claims ,
I felt it might ease some collectors minds to know that I’m Wyandot
and recognized as such by a Wyandotte Chief of a federally recognized Wyandot(te) Nation.
We come from the same families, so we Wyandot(te) people don’t normally even think about these things.
But for any who have had hesitation, or bouts of apprehension…here it is….
now i can get back to making art. 🙂
