About The Ceremony to the Eagle Spirit

Ceremony to the Eagle Spirit easily relates to Chant of the Buffalo Spirit by Swazo, illustrated in Clara Lee Tanner's Southwest Indian Painting (Figure 5.80, full page color).  Tanner characterized Chant of the Buffalo Spirit as "One of Swazo's most magnificent creations, the epitome of all the artist's best characteristics", which was likely why she chose Swazo's painting for the cover of her book, 2nd edition.

About the Artist

(1929-1974, Tesuque Pueblo) Hinds' Indian name was Grey Squirrel.

The book Southwest Indian Painting A Changing Art by Clara Lee Tanner uses a painting by Patrick Swazo Hinds for its cover illustration.  Cited as "one of the most outstanding of all the pueblo artists" in the above publication, Hinds received a B.A. degree from Oakland's College of Arts and Crafts followed by additional training at Mexico City College and at the Chicago Art Institute.

His solo shows took place in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Oklahoma at public institutions and at private art galleries. He won the Grand Award at the Scottsdale Art Exhibition in 1966 as well as the Phoenix Gazette Special Award in oil paintings and a first award in graphics at the Scottsdale National of 1971.
