The painting is also an example of Fritz’s use of portraiture as well as the internal struggle of Native Americans. The symbolism of Fritz's Indian Series is strong in this painting with the circle being an important symbol of the Cherokee. The color black represented struggle and death where the color white represented peace and happiness. The symbolism of black war paint was power and strength where the symbolism of white war paint was peace.
