Questionartist #1

Who is an artist that people might not know yet about but should?

Native artists people should know are: Nakia Williamson-Cloud (Nez Perce) and John Wilson (Nez Perce). Both artists are known in north-central Idaho state. They are recognized a little bit in the interior Northwest, but little National acknowledgement. Neither artist participates in the larger Native Art Shows in the USA or Canada.
—Roger Amerman (Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma), Idaho, bead artist

It isn't easy being humble........
—James Luna [Pooyukitchum (Luiseno)], La Jolla Reservation, CA
Performance and Multimedia Installation artist

There’s this one guy, Darren J. Oliver. I know him from Flagstaff and his work is great. He really knows how to draw.
—Brandon Williams (DinĂ©), New Mexico, artist and NAGPRA enthusiast
