Cigar Box Lithographs Volume VI: Serenading America's Indigenous Peoples

Charles J. Humber

For close to a decade, Charlie Humber's discovery and documentation of the forgotten stories hidden beneath century-old wooden cigar box lids continues. In 2018, the initial volume of his series, headlined Cigar Box Lithographs: The Inside Stories Uncovered, "sparked" Charlie's widely embraced, six-volume series that has attracted a dedicated following both in Canada and abroad. In the latest volume of his acclaimed series, Charlie spiritedly delves into a timely topic: serenading the alluring history of America's Indigenous Peoples. As with his five previous volumes, he pays homage to historical times. Story by story, he utilizes cigar box lithographs as his guideposts to reach his principal objective.
