About Dennis' Work

Dennis Metcalf, Hunkpati Oyate, is facing down the difficulty and discovering healing through art. His work tells a powerful story of uncovering culture and identity. Dennis is on a journey of healing through sharing his art and story with the world. The act of drawing gives Dennis a space to explore, process his life, express himself, and ultimately dream. Dennis is a positive voice for Indigenous values and a role model for those in need of hope for a better tomorrow.

Dennis plans to assist with the story development of a Native American story that will promote indigenous storytelling. He will work on the story in conjunction with Native Hope staff and Giving with Joy. The goal is to have the story with preliminary sketches for a graphic novel complete by the end of his fellowship.

Help Us Bring Healing

The best way to help Native American communities is to start by listening. When you give to Native Hope, your support goes directly to projects that communities themselves have identified as important. Join our family of Natives and non-Natives working toward a world without barriers.
