BIO

As an artist and educator, Weeya teaches art to over 600 students a year. She was the first Native American artist featured in the Capital One Gallery in D.C. Her work was on display for a month and was seen by thousands of people. In 2017, her artwork was used for The National Congress of American Indians Conference’s brochures, pamphlets, website, and throughout the conference on booths and displays. The original painting used for the show was later purchased. The painting was titled “The Smoke Dancers“ and is currently on display at the Alabama Indian Affairs Commission in Montgomery, Alabama.

Currently, Weeya sits on the board of the Woodland Indian Art Show & Market. This event is held annually and supports all Woodland Indian artists. The Woodland Indian Art Show & Market is a non-profit organization created to expand the awareness and appreciation of Woodland Indian Arts and Culture through education, events and markets. Not only is Weeya a board member, but she is also the technology consultant responsible for their social media, technology and website.
