Gina Adams examines particular, painful moments in our American history: when 'white man' broke his promise over and over again to the original settlers and people of America: Native Americans. By sewing together injustice with objects of comfort, she placse hte burden of the broken treaty on top of the work of the original Colonists. Putting the words of the Broken Treaty on the historic quilts presents a truth that forces an examination of the unhooked treaties. Adams sews the unfulfilled words for her people, her family, and herself as an act of giving back the misuse and abuse of power.
