Black Pinto Horse,
Monte Yellow Bird Sr.


"I am Black Pinto Horse of the Arikara and Hidasta tribes of North Dakota.  Artistically, I have refined my heritage into a focal point, incorporating the traditional & spiritual as well as integrating oral tradition through a contemporary form of visual art expression.
"

Within his lifetime Monte Yellow Bird Sr, AKA Black Pinto Horse has experienced life through a series of his passions that have assisted to define & redefine him. As a young carpenter building homes from the ground up, a horse trainer beginning a young colt or a martial arts student practicing the fundamentals to become a master instructor. 

In 1994, Yellow Bird rose to become a National Tae Kwon Do Champion- the only First Nation competitor honored with a gold medal in Chicago IL. As an instructor, he inspired others & represented his family with the heart of a champion. Two decades later, he continues to represent his people with the heart of a champion as a National Award winning visual artist.

Black Pinto Horse uses a bold application of oil paint on canvas using First Nation icons while adding 3-D elements such as shells, horsehair, and bead-work. Expressionism shakes hands with realism, an approach synonymous with the evolving First Nation people to a contemporary world. Working in series, he uses the powerful icons of the lodge, horse & buffalo.

Black Pinto Horse carries on the family tradition as a Ledger Artist, the visual art expression of his late grandfathers, Strikes Enemy & Bears Teeth. Intrigued with their rich history, he ventured into ledger art from the perspective of a historian & educator. Yellow Bird is best known for his vibrancy & detail, using colored pencil on original paper from the 1800’s.  His contemporary style depicts the historic heartbeat of indigenous nations.

Yellow Bird signs his work with the name he was given through ceremony, Black Pinto Horse.  He is the son of Willard (Wolf Trail) Yellow Bird, a descendant of Bears Teeth & Iron Bear and Magdalen (Corn Tassel) Youngbird/Yellow Bird a descendant of Strikes Enemy & Sitting Bear. 

While in high school, his math teacher recognized his artistic talent, introducing him to the renowned Institute of American Indian Arts of Santa Fe NM. As a 16-year-old that had never left the reservation, he credits this experience as life changing saying, “It evoked a pride of my culture & a new self-identity.”

Years later, Yellow Bird furthered his art & history studies at North Dakota State University, Fargo, ND majoring in History Education with an Art minor. In 2002, he earned a BFA from Minot State University, Minot, ND. 

Since 2004 he has owned and operated his fine arts and educaitonal company, Black Pinto Horse Fine Arts.  Yellow Bird is represented by galleries, museums and educational institutions both nationally and internationally.  He attends prestigious Indian Art Markets such as Santa Fe Indian Market, the Heard and Eiteljorg Museums and has collectors worldwide, such as art in the permanent collection of the Volkenkunde Museum of Leiden Netherlands and the Nelson- Atkins Museum in Kansas City.  

Within the educational component of his company, Black Pinto Horse provides presentations, lectures and workshops to K-12 and University school systems, motivational and teambuilding workshop to notable corporations, organization and communities.

He has been involved with fundraising projects such as Easter Seals, Court Appointed Special Advocates, and many others.  "Empathy towards others, the knowledge that I have a purpose, gift and direction towards making a difference in the world, has inspired me to help others”.  In 2004, he painted a life-size fiberglass horse for Easter Seals fundraising event, Catch a Painted Pony which was the highest selling at $11,100 and was purchased by Pepsi of Minot ND.   In 2005 he painted a life-size fiberglass bison on sight in the West Acres Mall, “Buffalo Path the Gathering” which was purchased by the mall for $12,000 and the proceeds went to the Arts Partnership of Fargo ND.

His livelihood is best explained by his coined phrase,
“If you’re going to shine, shine brightly.”
