    As a woman of Lakota and European ancestry, my life experiences have been a continual negotiation of both Western and Indigenous educations, value systems, and worldviews. Through the amalgamation of symbols and motifs derivative of both Lakota and Western abstraction, my artwork examines, dissects, and patches back together pieces of each in a means to provide an honest representation of self and culture.

    Dyani White Hawk (Sicangu Lakota, born 1976) was born in Madison, Wisconsin, and resides in St. Paul, Minnesota. She received a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Institute of American Indian Arts and a master of fine arts degree in painting from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. White Hawk’s work often combines Lakota quillwork design with strong lines that echo blanket and moccasin patterns. Her care in using her abstractions to bring American Indian tradition into a dynamic contemporary context reveals a powerful intellect and remarkable originality.

    Born to a Wyoming rancher and Seneca mother, Marie Watt (Seneca)has described herself as half cowboy, half Indian. Deeply studied in art, Watt says she "consciously draw[s] from indigenous design principles, oral traditions, and personal experience to shape the inner logic of the work I make." Much of her work, including that created at Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts, captures the texture and stories inherent in everyday objects. Watt was awarded an Eiteljorg Fellowship for Native American Fine Art in 2005.

He is widely recognized for his abstract landscapes, structured and reinterpreted from the geography of his lifelong home, the Umatilla Indian Reservation. He is self-educated in art, describing the artistic process as gestures of painting that are their own acts of nature, similar to the landscapes they represent. Lavadour founded Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts as a reservation-based nonprofit organization in 1992. He has received numerous awards, including the Eiteljorg Fellowship for Native American Fine Art in 2005, Award for Visual Arts from the Flintridge Foundation in 2004, Oregon Governor’s Arts Award in 1994, and the Betty Bowen Award in 1991.
