George Flett learned much about of his Indian heritage from his mother, including tribal lore and traditional art forms. Graduating from the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1966, Flett went on to study at the University of Colorado and served in the U.S. Army from 1968 to 1970. He began working full-time as an artist in 1983, creating work in several media that reflects, among other things, his Native background—including several representations of the colorful Prairie Chicken Dance— and his rodeo experience as a champion bull rider. He lived and worked near Wellpinit, Washington, on the Spokane Indian Reservation.
