Richard Lomahinma Dawavendewa was born and raised in the Hopi village of Moenkopi, Arizona, but came to North Dakota pursue an MFA at UND.
Dawavendewa's work is deeply symbolic, conveying elements of his life experience as a Hopi. He credits his grandfather, an esteemed elder in his community, for instilling within him a deep respect for his culture.
