Mabel visits Palo Duro Canyon

By Kathleen VanDeMark

Mabel, one of VanDeMark’s beloved horses, spirits to Palo Duro Canyon to pay homage to her ancestors and unveils the truth of a history left untold.

Maybel Visits is a commemoration to the horses that perished during the altercation between First Nation peoples of the Comanche, Cheyenne, Arapaho, and Kiowa tribes and the 4th US Calvary lead by Colonel R.S. Mackenzie.  Archiving with symbolic imagery, this group of 100 paintings raises awareness of this historical event.
