I drew the plain little graphic of the white buffalo last summer. It was recently "honored" by theft and plagiarized by some character calling himself Duster, whose website is supposedly "Cool Stuff for Native Americans." We don't think it's cool, Duster, we've been through this thefts business with you waschichu for centuries. While stealing my graphic, Duster steals the rest of his white buffalo content materials-- that and football are what his page features -- from other websites. I had been thinking of finding a real artist to draw a better buffalo for these redesigned pages, but decided to keep this little stolen image for a while, as a kind of reminder about, oh, stolen land , broken treaties and cool stuff like that.
