Apikuni Falls by Bonnie Zahn Griffith

Pastel on Paper

28" x 18"

33" x 23" (framed, under glass)

From a show at the Hockaday Museum titled "For the Love of Glacier: Paintings and Photography by Bonnie Griffith and L.R. Newman." Bonnie posthumously collaborated with her distant relative, the late photographer L.R. Newman. Griffith grew up admiring the photos of L.R. Newman’s trips to Montana and Glacier, which reminded her of her own family ranch in Central Montana and her own connection to Glacier. In 2021, she decided to create a new body of work in response to specific photos of special locations.

The name of Apikuni Falls is derived from the Indian name given to James Willard Schultz, a noted author, explorer, guide, fur trader and historian of the Blackfoot Indians. "Apikuni" in the Blackfoot language means Far Off White Robe, Spotted Robe, or Far-Away Robe, depending on the translation. Schultz was given the name while living with the Pikuni tribe during the early 1880s.
