GALLERY I
THE TRIBES OF CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES

Antoine Tzapoff has studied for many years the different tribes of Canada and the United States, the research of traditions, attires, utensils, weapons and jewelry had paid well to represent on canvas a detailed image of members of those tribes wearing their daily typical attires.
Gallery I presents to you some paintings of the warriors that once reigned in those territories.

Region 1: The Tribes Of The "Belle Province"

This territory extended from the Labrador Peninsula to the region of the Great Lakes, the tribes of this region is a clear example of the harmony that existed between the tribes of those regions and the French emigrants. The tribes of the region easily adopted many traditions from the Europeans, those traditions were incorporated in their own attires.

Region 4: The Tribes Of The Central And West Regions Of The United States

The tribes that occupied the Center and West of the United States are the clear example of resistance to invasions and changes, the ideology to preserve their own traditions elevated them to the category of rebels.  Tribes like the Kiowa, the Ioway, the Pawnee, the Osage, the Seminole, the Kickapoo, the Pima, the Chiricahua and the Kumeyay are not rebels, are warriors that deserve an important place in History for their great culture, traditions and example of preserving their human nature.
