Prints by Spirit of Cukson
Decorate your space with these amazing and beautiful prints by Tucson's own Spirit of Cukson! Alex Sixkiller is a Yoeme & Tohono O'odham artist who takes inspiration from his culture and the Tucson area.
• Bring The Rain: The image pays homage to the Tohono O’odham tradition of harvesting saguaro fruit to ensure the continuation of rain throughout the year.
• Queen Cactus: It is a nopal with a big flower crown, and a serape pattern melting on it. This “Made in Tucson” is there because all of it was made in Tucson.
• Yaquecita Selena print & sticker: Image portrays the queen of cumbia in an Indigenous light, more specifically the Yaqui tribe. Selena’s outfit has the colors of a hummingbird, a star in each corner to represent the four directions and the colors of the rose represent the Yaqui flag. Her earrings have the moon and sun.
• Star Harvest: this is an image of an O’odham woman harvesting a star, each half represents night and day. The stripes in the middle represent ribbons used in contemporary native clothing.
• Red Monochromatic: A traditional Tohono O’odham woman holding a basket on her head in shades of red because Alex likes the color red.
