Paintings of Arthur Short Bull (Tatanka Ptecila)

May 9, 2015

Arthur Short Bull, an Oglala Lakota, grew up on the Pine Ridge reservation. He began painting watercolors as a way to deal with the stress of working as a substance abuse counselor, and his art became a vehicle for documenting the history of his people and expressing his emotions about the whys and wherefores of what has happened to Native Americans over the last few centuries. More information about his work may be found at His paintings will be on exhibit in the library’s Hartman Gallery and fireplace lounge through the month of May.
