No Trespassing Indian was painted in the Mission District of San Francisco around 2010. It shows an Indian sitting on the ground, quiver of arrows on his back, feathers upright, hair in a ponytail. He is holding a No Trespassing sign. The wall is brown and has tags and a barred window.

The Indian sits on the ground, which is customary for him. He is in his everyday gear, a man who hunts for his food, still living free. He has had a good way of life. There was no crime, no poverty. Then came the White people, and look what happened. The window has bars on it to protect what is inside. The brown wall symbolizes the earth, our country. The tags are considered by many a blight. The sign is self-explanatory”stop hurting the land and the people.
