Discover NiCole Hatfield

Unity, spirituality, and connection to the earth are at the center of my culture, and these are the teachings that I want to continue. Storytelling is the way that we keep these traditions alive.

 I frequently incorporate tribal language and traditional stories into my paintings with the hope of inspiring the Native youth to keep creating and continue our traditions of storytelling in painting.
