Her work is in permanent collections worldwide including musicians Sir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney and Michael McDonald, Grand Teton National Park and the Smithsonian Institute’s Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC.
Kingsley “King” Kuka was a local Blackfeet artist and poet, known for his paintings and lithographs which he called “Kuka-graphs.” He inspired an entire generation of American Indian Artists, and his work is recognized internationally; it is said the Vatican holds one of his paintings in their prestigious collection. Sadly, King Kuka passed away in December 2003. His legacy, however, lives on through the creative spirit of his family as his wife Marietta and five children (Kqyn, Kodi, Kokko, Khi, Khol) are active in the arts as well.
