About Richard Hill
Born 1950 in Buffalo, New York, Hill's mother was a Tuscarora Indian and his father was a Mohawk.  Following tradition he became an apprentice ironworker at age seventeen and walked the steel for  three years until a tragic accident took his brother's life.  Reassessing, he obtained a Master's degree from the State University of New York in Buffalo and studied photograph at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  

Hill was an instructor at the State University of New York in Buffalo for thirteen years and worked as an art director and columnist for Day Bread, a national Native American newspaper.  He has been a curator, program manager, course consultant as well as chairman of the North American Indian Museum Association. In 1990 he became the director of the IAIA Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Hill's own art encompasses traditional Iroquoian headdresses as well as photographs and paintings of Indians in modern mainstream life.  

His work is in the permanent collections of many museums including the Indian Arts and Crafts Board, United States Department of the Interior, Washington, D.C.; Museum of Man, Ottawa, Ontario; Indian and Northern Affairs, Ottawa, Ontario; Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Cleveland, Ohio and Woodland Cultural Centre, Brantford, Ontario.
