Allan Houser and the Legacy of One Apache Family

Streaming Video - 2011
Rate this:
In decades past, Native-American artists who wanted to sell to mainstream collectors had little choice but to create predictable, Hollywood-style western scenes. Then came a generation of painters and sculptors led by Allan Houser (or Hazous), a Chiricahua Apache artist with no interest in stereotyped imagery and a belief that his own rich heritage was compatible with Modernist ideas and techniques. Narrated by actor Val Kilmer and originally commissioned as part of an exhibit of Houser's work at the Oklahoma History Center, this program depicts the artist's tribal ancestry, his rise to regional and national acclaim, and the continuing success of his sons as they expand upon and depart from their father's achievements. Key works are documented, as is Houser's tenure at the Santa Fe-based Institute of Native American Arts.
