“The Proud Ones” is an oil painting done by the late David Humphreys Miller over 60 years ago. This aged couple, Hosteen Hwiisxini (Mr. White horse) and his wife were descendants of Hoskinini band, which eluded Kit Carson’s round up of the Navajo in 1846. Escaping confinement at the Bosque Redondo in New
Mexico and the subsequent “Long Walk” back to tribal lands in 1868 -1869,
Hoskinini’s followers hid out in the rugged country between Monument Valley and Navajo Mountain in Utah. Their descendants still consider themselves the
elite of the Navajo Nation - Hence David Humphreys Miller titled this painting, “The Proud Ones”. For a limited edition print 40″x 40″ , Check out: www.DavidHumphreysMillerArt.com.
