Bob Haozous
, a Warm Springs Chiricahua Apache, was born in Los Angeles, California. An outspoken critic of the state of our planet, with strong opinions about the role of Native American artists, his work often reflects his political thinking. Haozous combines Native, especially Apache imagery, strong form, and a carefully honed wit aimed at life in America.
