About Leonard Peltier

 
 
  • Biography

    “I’m a long way from my peak as an artist.”Growing up with uncles who would spend time sketching and carving, Peltier would watch his elders in their craft and try to imitate them.

    “I remember I started carving with a knife I had found in the trash and sharpened up. I learned to draw before I could read or write, and it was kind of a way to communicate for me… I took art classes in school… art was what I was good at. I began teaching myself painting and getting into colors just before I got arrested. After my arrest, I really didn’t do anything until about 1984 or 1985.”

    Painting of Native Americans from the past and the present, is a love that i have for the people and to represent the beauty of Native Americans
