The series Remnants is a commentary on American Indian sovereignty, identity, experience and perception. Jones is examining how American Indian culture is represented through popular culture and raising questions about these depictions of identity by non-natives and Natives alike. The images for the engraved glass are appropriated from historical documents such as newspapers, etchings, and ledger drawings. The photographs that accompany the engravings were taken at nearly 100 Indian casinos throughout the United States. The dialogue between these two speak to what has happened in American history and the future of what is to come for Indian communities.
