About The Buffalo Hunter

A young male on a spotted pony rides beside a buffalo on the run. Clearly the hunter has a long staff in both hands. Small birds fly overhead above the stylized clouds. A cow skull lies on the ground beneath the buffalo's belly.


About Percy (Kai Sa) Sandy

(1918-1974, Zuni)  Percy Tsisete Sandy was born in 1918 at Zuni Pueblo in northern New Mexico. He was educated at the Santa Fe Indian School and at the Sherman Indian School in Riverside, California. He married a young woman from Taos and went to live at her pueblo.

Percy Sandy, who used his traditional name Kai Sa (Red Moon) in signing his work, experimented with a variety of styles, mediums and subjects, but he preferred to work in watercolor in a representational manner. Also known as a muralist, his best known mural is at the La Fonda Hotel in Santa Fe.

Kai Sa’s work can be seen in the collections at the Gilcrease Institute and the Philbrook Art Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma; the Heard Museum, Phoenix, Arizona; the Indian Arts and Crafts Board, Washington, D.C.; the Museum of Northern Arizona; the Museum of New Mexico; and the United Pueblo Agency, New Mexico.
