The original piece was first sculpted in 1894 by James Earle Fraser,
based on his experiences growing up in Dakota Territory.
The original 7" circular counted cross stitch from which these reproductions are created took
Stitch Artist Trina Yelensky nearly 1,000 hours throughout a 10 year period to complete.
 
A brief explanation of the inspiration for Fraser's bronze masterpiece follows:

“’The Indians will someday be pushed into the Pacific Ocean.’ Intended as a pointed commentary
on the damaging effects of Euro-American settlement on American Indian nations,
the figure slumps over despondently, embodying the physical exhaustion
and suffering of a people forcefully driven to the end of the trail.”
