This clay tile by Jason Garcia is inspired by the Indigenous comic book series, “Tribal Force”. The figure is “Gan”, inspired by the Apache Gahn dancers.  There were four different superheroes who were part of the Tribal Force (Gan, Earth, LIttle Big Horn, and Thunder Eagle”).  Tribal Force was the first comic book series to have all indigenous superheroes and was published in 1996 (Click here to read more).  The figure here is painted with natural clay slips surrounded by Jason’s signature clouds on the sides.  It is a strong and exciting piece.  The tile is signed with his Tewa name, Okuu Pin, which means Turtle Mountain.  This tile is hand-built from native clay.  All of the colors are derived from Native clay and traditionally fired.
