About the Artist

Adolph Bitanny Dodge was born in 1911 at Wheatfield, Arizona in the Navajo Nation in northeastern Arizona. He was the grandson of Henry Chee Dodge who was the last head chief of the Navajo Nation, and their first elected Tribal Chairman. While at Bacone Junior College Dodge was given the nickname "Adee" in respect to his initials, by his teachers.

He went on to earn a B.A. from the University of New Mexico in 1935, followed by an M.A. and a Juris Doctorate from Columbia University in 1935 and 1945. Dodge served in the U. S. Army during WWII, as a Navajo Code Talker.

Dodge began to paint actively in 1954, primarily in casein. He was commissioned to paint a mural at the Arizona State University Administration Building. Adee Dodge’s work has been exhibited at the Arizona State Museum, the Heard Museum, the Intertribal Indian Ceremonial and the Peabody Museum.  (1911-1992)
