Dallin Maybee Dallin Maybee : Artist and Law Student
    Dallin Maybee is Northern Arapaho/ Seneca Indian from the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation in Western New York and the Wind River Indian Reservation in central Wyoming. His Arapaho name in English loosely translates to “Thunder Sound Comes Down,” or “A Thunder Being is Coming this Way.”
   Dallin comes from a long-line of well known beadworkers including Bob Spoonhunter and Agnes Logan-Spoonhunter; and his brother Ken Williams Jr., is a renowned contemporary beadworker. In 2007, at the prestigious Santa Fe Indian Market, Dallin was awarded Best of Show, Best of Division, Best of Classification and various other awards for his exquisite artwork. The award winning pieces were two original, truly one-of-a-kind children’s books with fully bead-worked covers and illustrated in ledger art style on antique ledger paper from 1863. Thought provoking and warm, the books celebrate that special relationship that children have with their parents and also explore that magical and spiritual world within which children live. Dallin has completed a third book and has won numerous other awards at other art shows including the Heard Museum Indian Market and the Cherokee Art Market.
   Dallin is also quickly establishing himself as an exciting contemporary ledger artist whose pieces are refreshing and culturally relevant as he explores identity, traditional and contemporary Indian life, as well as the dynamic interplay between the two which has allowed Indigenous culture to evolve, survive, and flourish. Dallin’s ledger pieces are not limited to antique ledger pages; his mediums have included pages from the 1583 Geneva Bible, 16th century rice paper, rawhide, and buffalo robes.
   Dallin regularly shows at large art markets throughout the country, and his artwork can be seen in various private and public collections. Featured articles on his work have included; Southwest Art Magazine, Native Peoples Magazine, Western Art Collector Magazine, Cowboys and Indians Magazine, and SWAIA Magazine amongst others.
   Dallin tours regularly with the acclaimed American Indian Dance Theater as well as the production of Spirit- the Seventh Fire and various other groups as an accomplished Northern Traditional and Hoop dancer. He has toured throughout the world as a performing artist and in 2002, he was a consulting choreographer for the Native American section of the Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies. Additionally he has appeared in various film and television roles, most recently for Disney in a lacrosse movie; documentaries for the History Channel, and in the role of Roman Nose for Wild West Tech.
   Dallin is currently a law student attending the Sandra Day O’Conner College of Law at Arizona State University with an emphasis in Federal Indian Law and economic development. He has completed Masters Degree coursework at UCLA in Los Angeles and also has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy. Dallin is the husband to an inspiring and amazing wife, Naomi Maybee; and the proud father of an incredible ten year old son, Sage Graystorm Maybee.
