Representing a cultural crucifixion, this piece contrasts the American highway system that runs through the United States connecting its citizens to one another to the trails of defeat and humiliation through which Native American peoples have been divided and subjugated. The caricatures of buck-toothed savages bespeak the stereotyping that makes such treatment palatable and the carved heads popping out of toasters represents the dominant white culture's belief that "we toasted 'em." Each of the twelve toasters has a plaque inscribed with the name and dates of a trail which a particular Native American people was forced to walk (e.g., The Trail of Tears, Cherokee, 1838-1839; Bosque Redondo Retreat, Navaho, 1864-1868, The BIA paper trail, 1887-present).
