For Mother's Day
Just a few examples of the hundred of interpretations done by Allan Houser of a mother and her children.
With great sadness, the Houser / Haozous family relates that Mrs. Houser passed away in the early morning hours of Friday, May 3, 2019. Born Fidencia Anna Maria Gallegos on August 7, 1912, she was 106 years old. She married Allan Houser in 1938 and shared 54 years with him before his passing in 1994. Condolences may be sent to the family c/o The Allan Houser Foundation, P.O. Box 5217, Santa Fe, NM 87502.
Allan Capron Haozous was born June 30, 1914 on a family farm in Apache Oklahoma. He was the first Chiricahua Apache child to be born out of captivity after 27 years of imprisonment following Geronimo's surrender in 1886. He was born with a muse to make art, and from his humble beginnings he rose to become one of the most widely recognized artists of the 20th century. His explorations in drawing, painting and sculpture transformed the concept of Indian Art.

Allan Houser Haozous was the first Chiricahua Apache child born out of captivity at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. He was among the first students to study painting at the Santa Fe Indian School and was the first chosen to do murals at the Department of Interior in Washington, D.C. He was the first American Indian artist in the 20th century to do a monumental sculpture. He was the first faculty member hired to teach at the Institute of American Indian Arts in 1962 and had influence on thousands of students he taught there. He was the first Native American Artist to receive the National Medal of the Arts, and he and George Morrison were honored with an inaugural exhibition at the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian. Although he was recognized by a number of institutions during his lifetime, museum such as the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Chicago Art Institute, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art for years ignored the importance and influence of his work because he was an "Indian Artist". Now some in a new crop of curators, intent on "discovering" the modern voice of Native America ignore the impact and influence he has had on generations.
