    Each painting spoke to me in it’s own way I loved them all, I really like 90′s feel stuff so this was right for me, question though… I’m from Canada so maybe I’m missing something but how does Irish Egyptian and Scottish make you Native American? Why would tribes even call themselves those names?

    I am Native American (Omaha Tribe of Nebraska) There are no tribes under your listing. I have been to many pow-wows (Tribal Social Gatherings) and have yet to meet any tribal member with any of the listings you offered. Where do you hail from? what’s your enrollment#? who is your tribal council? how many seats?

    Wow. I love the paintings so much. CT Michael is an amazing painter who puts so much emotion and meaning into his paintings. They must be that much more impressive in real life. I especially love “Generations” painting. We don’t get to see Native American paintings too often and I’m happy these came out of hiding. :) Very nice job, all.

  16. CT Michael says:

    Greetings All,

    Ct Michael with You. First Thank You for all the wonderful comments on my work. Next to answer a few questions, i offer this. For Joseph: My National bloodlines and heritage exist as French Creole, Cherokee, Choctaw, and Afro-Nigerian from my Mother; and Scottish, Irish, Cherokee, Si Hasapa (Blackfoot) Lakota, Afro-Judean and Afro-Egyptian from my Father. My base genetic code hails 65% from my Father and his Mother’s blood line. So the Lakota culture has always had a much more powerful pull on my personality.
    For Hawk: Being born outside of “The Rez”, i have no true tribal affiliation or papers. This was something that i had looked into obtaining during the early 1990′s. However due to financial restraints to hire a geneologist and a few family members who desired to withhold certain infomation concerning the family’s Native American heritage, this aspect remains on the shelf so to speak.
    More important in my view and understanding would be the fact that i know who i am, and where i hail from. I attend Pow-wows and spiritual gatherings also Brother Hawk and i have learned to look beyond tribal affiliation and see each as an individual and more importantly as a Human Being.

    Your art is very beautiful and inspiring filled with spirit. It shows what humans have lost in present day, “that” all important spiritual conection to universe which, has been lacking for a very long time and the need to be in touch with spirit and all of creation to create the change that is needed. Beautiful Work!

  21. Night prayer is my favorite, because the sparks are making a pattern that’s connecting both worlds. I can see patterns in every picture and interpret it as a focus of a spirit.
    I’m inspired and I’m looking forward of tonight’s night prayer :-)

    Sir,
    Night Prayer spoke to me straight away, made my DNA tingle. I the energy in my hands turn on while looking at it.

    But what struck me more was your response to the interrogation as to your heritage. All I can say is, “well done.” I thought your response was perfect; well spoken, respectful, and you got the very important point across to accept each person as an individual and not lump them into a, seemingly, all encompassing ‘affiliation’.

    Thank you for sharing your work. W.

    Hawk – I look at this page and it is your comments that stir more for me than the paintings… Why must CT have proof that he comes from where he says? Why must he prove anything to you, or any one? Surely what matters is his personal connection, where his heart lies, where he feels he belongs?

    I have never been to America, I have not met you, I have not met CT and I never have replied in a blog before, but I feel the need to respond because that you seem to be saying you do not accept him as a Native American saddens me. We all are one, or did you forget…

Abandon all restraints and apply your creativity to the canvas or any other means that delight you…for you sir are a true “human” and an artist. As far as Hawk? Thank you Jen, you said it perfectly! Well…perhaps I will add one more thing…there is a reason that you are not referred to as Eagle…for as Eagle you would know that your negative opinions matter so little.
