about this piece
In her On the Run series, artist Judy Larson focuses on animals that either find, or have found, themselves in dire circumstances. The Defiant is inspried by a heartbreaking chapter in history.

'The year was 1858, and several companies of soldies under the leadership of Colonel George Wright were engaged in a punitive military expedition against the Native American tribes, Yakam, Spokane, Palouse, and Coeur d'Alene,' explains Judy Larson. 'On the morning of September 8, Colonel Wright and his troops spotted a large cloud of dust which revealed the position of 800 Palouse horses. Although a valiant effort was made by the tribes to drive their hoses into the moutains, after a fierce skirmish, the majority of the herd was captured. Although it was a crime to kill a horse on the frontier, it was Wright's job to subdue the tribes' powerful hold over their land and to demoralize them. It took the better part of two days to shoot, club, and kill all the horses and, as the Native Americans watched helplessly from teh hills, the could not believe what they saw. Today, along the banks of the Spokane River, a monument marks the site that became known as Horse Slaughter Camp.
