Weather Dancer Dream by Howard Terpning
The Sundance Ceremony was one of the most important religious events of the Plains Indians’ year, and it took place usually around the time of the summer solstice. Important to the event, which lasted generally four to eight days, was good weather, and in The Weather Dancer Dream, Howard Terpning shows the work and wisdom of the Blackfoot Weather Dancer in the midst of his most important duties.
While originally, Terpning says, he was planning to paint the work in an interior setting, when the very image of the finished painting came to him in a dream, the setting, and the title, were set.
