Kansas-born educator Dorothy Dunn established America's first Indian art school, thus ushering in the flat-art style by which Native American painters have been celebrated as the first modernists. Reproduced here are over ninety paintings by such prominent artists and former students as Pablita Velarde, Joe H Herrera, Allan Houser and Pop Chalee.
