Harold C. Joe, is the Aboriginal Film Maker who produced the documentary on the homeless called, "Broken Down". Harold and the Red Tailed Hawk are one and the same. In the native tradition, the hawk represents a "messenger". Harold shared how the Red Tailed Hawk has a powerful and personal meaning to him. As he was speaking, I saw that Harold himself was also the Hawk or "messenger" bringing his peoples' stories to life in film. I couldn't paint Harold without painting the hawk.
