As a tribute to our respected and cherished elders, this exhibition features original portraits painted by world-renowned, Chickasaw artist Mike Larsen.

Noted by the award-winning Larsen as one of his greatest achievements, the Chickasaw elders paintings were published in a two-book series by the Chickasaw Press—“They Know Who They Are” and “Proud to Be Chickasaw.” Together the volumes feature the portraits of almost 50 Chickasaw elders painted by Larsen, and each is accompanied by a short biography written by Martha Larsen and Jeannie Barbour.
