Churchill Art Piece Called Into Question
by CBS4 News reporter Raj Chohan
Feb 24, 2005 8:03 pm US/Mountain BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) Boulder County resident Duke Prentup has been a fan of native American art for as long as he can remember. That love of art took him to the home of Ward Churchill in the early 1980's, where Prentup bought several pieces of Churchill's art, including a serigraph titled "Winter Attack."
"I have enjoyed them ever since immensely, they're obviously up inside my house," Prentup said.
Last month came a stunning revelation, though, as as Prentup flipped through a 1972 book called The Mystic Warriors of the Plains written and illustrated by the late artist Thomas E. Mails. He found a sketch that was strikingly similar to the Churchill piece.

I clicked on it and it took me right to MY "My Ebay" page. LOL!
Thanks :) And with that I am going to bed! Good night all. West Coast signing off early for a change.
unbelievable...you couldn't make this stuff up.
She's that Berry, CyberAnt.
Long time friend of Jesse Jackson and Bill Clinton too.
I'm no cynic, but still I think you're a cock-eyed optimist.
He got 200 hits to his auction in less than 10 minutes. It will go into the thousands.
I beginning to think you are the Forrest, Forrest Gump of our time.
Like when Forrest said, "Sorry about breaking up your Black Panther Party."
Check your Freepmail, please.
Wow! Look at all those left-handed indians!
I had to log into ebay using my own name and password. I think your safe. (But I'm not an IT guy...)
What do you mean, what do you mean??? (I sure hope it's good....it's too late to start a fight......LOL)
I doubt if they care that it's bogus. My prediction --- After WC (appropriate initials, by the way) goes down in flames, the LibRads will say he was the victim of a Vast RWC and there will be a myth of epic proportion built around him. When this happens, his forged art will be resold for a great deal more than it is now. Sad but true.
Good grief .. the whole liberal cabal is unraveling all over the place .. LOL!!
There is a scripture which says, "Everything hidden will be revealed". Looks like the revealing has begun!
Forrest seemed to be in on so many of the important events of his era. So are you.
You go, kid.
Did you see this? More fake Indian news.
I looked at it, then copied the item number, and went into my own eBay accout & searched, and got the American page.
The page posted is on eBay's Taiwan site.
That written item description is enough to gag a maggot off a gut wagon.
