Indian to be honored for artistry, cultural work
The blood of two tribes flows into Urshel Taylor's art.
Today, Taylor was to be recognized for his lifetime artistic contributions and his efforts to preserve and revitalize the culture of the Akimel Au-Authm.
Honorees also are chosen because they are held in esteem both inside and outside their tribal communities.
