When asked about his work with Native American sculptures Chiles said, "In creating the portraits of Native Americans, I wanted to give living presence to the scullpture and show the emotion of sadness in the faces of individuals who had suffered because of the conflict between two cultures."  This piece was created through an elaborate process of sculpting, castings, and firings.
