opportunity description
The American Indian Alliance needs artwork developed for its Web site and for printed materials. It primarily needs a logo, but other artwork for use on its Web site and future publications would also be a big help. The Alliance centerpiece project is developing awareness around the encounters (usually disasteous) and relationships (usually strained and often deadly), between Europeans and the native peoples of North America through the 1800s. Ideally, the Alliance would like several submissions to choose from, submitted by more than one volunteer.
