Dana Tiger is an award winning, internationally acclaimed artist.  She
is a member of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation and is of Seminole and Cherokee
descent. Dana was just five years old when her father, legendary artist Jerome
Tiger, passed away.  She turned to
his art as a way to know him and that engagement, coupled with the tutelage of
her uncle, renowned painter Johnny Tiger Jr., exposed Dana both to the richness
of her culture and to the bounty of her family’s artistic
tradition.
 
Best known for her
watercolors and acrylic paintings depicting the strength and determination of
Native American women, Dana’s paintings now hang in galleries, universities,
Native American institutions and state buildings nationwide.  In recognition of her accomplishments Dana was inducted
into the Oklahoma Women’s Hall of Fame in 2001.
 
Daughter Christie, studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts, in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Younger brother Lisan, an award winning sculptor, attended Northeastern State University.
 
Dana, her husband Don Blair, their children and grandchild Aiden Jerome, manage the Tiger Art Gallery in Muskogee, Oklahoma.
 
In 2002 Dana and her family founded Legacy Cultural Learning Community, a non profit with the mission of nurturing creativity within Native youth via the
celebration and sharing of tribal languages and culture through the arts.
