Jaune Quick-To-See Smith

American, Salish-Kootenai, Métis-Cree, Shoshone, born 1940

Quick-To-See Smith was born in 1940 on the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Nation in Montana. The artist uses correspondences found in both contemporary art and historical Indigenous art to express her views on the issues found in both cultures. Her artwork utilizes symbols, figures, signs, animal tracks, maps, and constellations within a landscape to create a contemporary artwork that is a bridge between Euro-American and Native American cultural traditions.
