The Crossing is a condemnation of white supremacy illustrated with paintings and drawings on found newspaper of the colonialists business. The iconography is referential to Columbus and slavery through the invasion of the Europeans in their land. Also touched on is the idea of crossing over, in several forms, from life to death and from ignorance to knowing. Tripp uses iconographic representations of the Karuk philosophy to comment on his own self-identity within this whole concept.
