James Starkey, an enrolled member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, is an award-winning artist who captured first place at the 1999 Northern Plains Tribal Arts Exposition as well as one of 12 Merit Awards given at the 1999 Black Hills Powwow and Arts Exposition. Starkey also placed at the 1996 and 1998 Northern Plains Tribal Arts shows for his pencil drawings and work in mixed media. The artist says:

dna testing, dna ancestry testing, ancestry, genealogy, indian genealogy records, paternity testing, turquoise jewelry, native american jewelry

“I believe I have a mission in art … I believe that traditional Lakota art is highly biographical. By combining traditional pictography and symbolism with modern media such as spray paint and collage, I am ‘writing my story in paint’. I love art, I live art, I am a Lakota artist on a mission.”

Starkey currently has a studio in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. His work is displayed in galleries and public collections around the state, including the Prairie Star Gallery and Northern Plains Tribal Art Gallery (Sioux Falls), Warrior’s Work Gallery (Hill City), The Journey (Rapid City), Crazy Horse Memorial (Crazy Horse) and the Red Cloud Heritage Center (Pine Ridge).

His work was also featured during a one-man show at the University of Sioux Falls in October-November 1999 and at the Washington Pavilion of Art and Science (Sioux Falls, SD) November 1999-January 2000. He is currently the official logo artist for the National Indian Education Association’s annual convention (2000) and made an appearance on South Dakota Public Television’s Buffalo Nation Journal (Nov-99).
