Wisdom Of The Tribe: Favorite Native American Artists On The Web

Copyright (c) 2007-2017

Many Native Americans have achieved fame through their art or through their lives, and some of the greatest artists of this modern age are descendants of the original American. Here are a few contemporary Native American artists and a description of their work:

Allison Snowhawk Lee makes some of the best Navajo and Native American jewelry in the world. His silver and turquoise creations come from the earth, and they make the earth shine. His beautiful works of art are fabulous Native American wear, and lovely decorations for anyone. (http://www.twinrocks.com/index.php?mod=artist&id_man=163)

Karen Clarkson is a favorite Choctaw portrait artist. Her captivating Native American portraits inspire people to really appreciate the Native American heritage. (http://clarksonart.com/contents.htm)

The Naminghas capture people's imagination in many ways. A family of Hopi artists with a worldwide fame, they operate in sculpture forms and prints. Their work is impressive. Seek out the brilliant works of Dan, Arlo, and Michael. You will not be disappointed. (http://www.namingha.com/)

Cha Tullis comes from the Blackfoot tribe. His limited edition prints take his viewers back to the days when Native American people roamed free on the plains. Cha's original acrylic paintings are some of the most marvelous creations this side of the planet. They are simply unbelievable. But Cha is more than just a visual artist. He is also a literary artist who tells stories that captivate imaginations and build dreams. He also operates in sculpture and has recently started working with giclee, an art form that utilizes computer digital technology to improve upon original paintings. Who says Native American man can't be modern? (http://www.chatullis.com/)

A favorite Cree artist is Native American Clarence Kapay. He is the winner of several awards, including the 2000 ABEX Award, Ducks Unlimited Canada's Art Print Portfolio, Tourism Saskatchewan Artistic Acclaim Award, and he took first place in the "Reflections of Nature" Wildlife Art Competition in 1998. (http://www.clarencekapay.com/)

Gerald McMaster of the Red Pheasant Reserve mixes Native American images with contemporary cultural icons to great effect. You'll be amazed by his mastery of his craft. (http://www.britesites.com/native_artist_interviews/gmcmaster.htm)

Of course, art is more than just visual representations of beauty. It is also cultural preservations of the past. No one does it better than Coast Salish artist Susan Point. Her public works portfolio is out of this world and her glassware creations are even better. It is easy to see why she is a favorite among Native American artists. (http://www.susanpoint.com/home.html)

Another Native American artist that is greatly admired for her craft is Alyssa Hinton. Her personal story is inspirational as well, because she lives her heritage everyday. It's more than just a way to claim some fame with images on canvas. Alyssa considered herself a member of the Cherokee tribe. But when her grandfather died she learned that she also had roots in the Katenuaga Tuscarora First Nation. Her art is spiritual and life giving and awakens the Native American in my soul. (http://www.alyssahinton.com/)

If you like music, you've got to listen to Ladyslipper, a trio of Native American girls who has opened for huge acts like the Indigo Girls. These ladies have beautiful voices and arrive at our place and time from the Katenuaga Tuscarora and Mayan/Apache tribes. (http://www.ladyslipper.org/rel/v2_viewupc.php?storenr=53&upc=68599775812)

For wood art, Echwv Fesiko has a gift that many cherish. A Muskogee stomp dancer, he also represents the Seminole tribe. His canes and staffs are hand carved and painted, and useful too. (http://fesikoart.tripod.com/)

Rance Hood creates awesome lithographs, serigraphs, and posters that depict Native Americans in their natural surroundings. His art touches the soul of all who look upon it. (http://www.rancehood.com/Rance/index.html)

Forensic art is not very popular, but it is art nonetheless. It is art for a useful purpose. Harvey Phillip Pratt is well recognized all over for his artwork for legal purposes. The only full-time forensic artist in Oklahoma, Harvey is employed by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and has been helping law enforcement through his art since 1965. He has helped solved many high profile cases with his talented pen and brush. He comes from the Cheyenne and Arapaho Native American tribes. (http://www.harveypratt.com/)

These are some of the world's favorite Native American artists.

With the development of the Internet, we now have means at our fingertips to bring the Native American family together under an interconnecting umbrella. As an extension of this idea, MyRezSpace.com was developed to give First Nations people a central location to come together and to share their heritage and culture with present and future generations.
