Paladine H Roye “full blooded Ponca Native American Indian) was exposed to much Kiowa art as a child. His grandfather often pointed out good paintings to him; his grandfather had great influence on Paladine. Art opened many doors for Paladine H Roye (Ponca Tribe), and through his art he met many people, and many people came to know him.
His tribal name was “Pon-Cee-Cee” which meant “..watch out for this one.” Paladine did not need to seek visions; he released visions through his art so that others could see.
Paladine was a Vietnam Veteran.
“The stories, dreams and ways of old are slipping through our people’s hands. The legends of the wolf, the dragonfly and swallow float away; elements of the sacred circle are no longer,” -Paladine H Roye, deceased (Ponca Tribe)
