Monte Yellowbird is a First Nations artist dedicated to sharing his experiences as he weaves storytelling, culture, traditions and art. He says, “At this stage in my life, with a lot of hard work, determination, failures and successes, I have made my dreams of being an artist a reality”. We asked him what it took to get there, what he tries to embody in his art, and how he navigates his traditional spiritual roots with the Christian beliefs his mother passed on to him. He’ll be speaking at the Teton County Library on Wednesday July 6th at 6pm and with his work displayed at the Art Fair this weekend.
