What epitomizes the history of the West more than Cowboys and Indians?
Indian imagery represents our true original Americans, who we look to particularly for their value of living in harmony with Mother Earth. Whether in profile or full face with headdress, the image of the Indian reflects strength and pride in one’s heritage. Many of the incredible buckles I love have been made by the Diné, or Navajo.
The cowboy image is a favorite for buckle collectors. He represents independence, among other things. I’ve loved the cowboy and Indian in film, from classic models like Hopalong Cassidy (I have seen every movie!), Roy Rogers, the Lone Ranger and Tonto, and Gene Autry, The Singing Cowboy, to the latest Lone Ranger and Tonto played by Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp. Tremendous fun!
