MIKE LARSEN, the Artist

Oklahoma painter and sculptor Mike Larsen, of Chickasaw ancestry, began his artistic studies at the University of Houston and completed his course work at the Art Students League in New York City.

His honors include being named a Master Artist by the Five Civilized Tribes Museum in Muskogee, Oklahoma, in 1996. He received the 1994 Best of Show award from the American Indian and Cowboy Artists association, and the Spirit of Oklahoma Award at the 1997 Masters Show at the Five Civilized Tribes Museum. Selected for a mural commission, this art was unveiled as a permanent installation in the Oklahoma State Capitol in 1991.

Larsen's oils, watercolors and pastels can be seen in museums and private collections throughout the United States.


Cheyenne Scouts

Cheyenne Scouts

Indians were sharply aware of what was going on around them. Scouts were always on the watch for unfriendly bands from other tribes and later for the white man. But they were also paying attention to what was happening with nature, where food might be plentiful or scarce, and where water could be found. If changes in the weather were noted, a camp might have to be moved, or supplies stocked up.

This painting depicts a group of Cheyenne warriors along the American River as it dips into northern Oklahoma. These scouts are armed and prepared for any danger, should it be encountered. Protecting and caring for the safety of their people was the purpose, and they did it well.

Warrior Memories

Warrior Memories

In the history of the Indians, warriors fought in battles and achieved honors with insight and vision, and a desire to see their sons walk proud. They recorded these events on skins with great detail.

The painted skin behind this warrior depicts a battle between the Mandan Indians and enemy tribesmen about 1800. Without this record by a man who saw the future need of the past, this battle, won or lost, would have gone untold, forgotten. But a warrior remembers, and in remembering relives his glory and honor with great pride.
