We join in mourning with the loss of Cherokee National Treasure, Jesse Hummingbird, artist & friend.
Jesse painted in the traditional flat style of the Oklahoma Natives, using vivid colors and distinct lining to create magnificent art, masks, and so much more. He has won numerous awards and distinctions. In 2017, he was given the honor of Cherokee National Living Treasure for preservation of Cherokee art, language, and culture.
Jesse most recently won first place in painting at the Tesoro Cultural art show in early June.
