Allan Haozous was born on June 30, 1914, and passed away on August 22, 1994. Oklahoma brought him into this world where he would eventually become a Chiricahua Apache sculptor, painter, and book illustrator. In the 20th century, he became one of the most famous Native American painters and modernist sculptors. He is greatly known for his work across North America, Europe, and Japan in places such as the Smithsonian Museum of American Art and the National Museum of the American Indian.

• The most productive time of Houser’s career began in 1975. This was when he retired. With all the time and materials he could ask for, his family compound was in southern Santa Fe County.
