Cultural Affiliation: Hopi-Tewa
About the Artist:
Although Duane grew up in Albuquerque, NM and graduated high school there in 1999, he is Hopi from Second Mesa, AZ and Tewa from San Juan Pueblo, NM.
From Duane Koyawena's Official Facebook Page: "By embracing my traditional teachings and culture, my art is pure again. Drawing/painting inspiration from my past, my sobriety, my family and most importantly, my Hopi identity - I am better able to affect positive energy to help myself and others live a balanced and happy life. Today, I complement my artwork with a desire to help others. I am currently working for the Behavioral Health department at the Flagstaff Medical Center. It is through this position that I am able to give back. Striving to live one day at a time with my daughter, I do my best to surround myself with beauty - one pencil or brushstroke at a time."
