About Chris Pappan
(Born 1971)  "Chris Pappan is an American Indian artist of Osage, Kaw, Cheyenne River Sioux and mixed European heritage.

Chris Pappan is the winner of the prestigious Discovery Fellowship from the Southwestern Association of Indian Artists (SWAIA) in 2011 and the Heard Museum’s Best of Class (Paintings, Drawings, etc.) and Best of Division (drawing) at the 52nd Annual Indian Market 2010.
