These are some of Rick Rivet's comments about his painting Beothuk Mound 14 (2001); they are also applicable to this group of paintings. "A memorial image referencing the genocidal extinction over 300 years of the Beothuk native people from the island of Newfoundland, Canada. Europeans (English / French) and native people (Micmac / Inuit) were responsible. The last known survivor, Shawnawdithit, died of tuberculosis in 1829. The outline of the Beothuk canoe can be seen buried in the collaged area of the painting..." -Rick Rivet
