Jesse Raine Littlebird (Laguna/Kewa Pueblos) is an artist, painter, writer, and film director born in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His passion for telling stories inspires personal and community action to “be the change you want to see in the world”. Storytelling through the medium of painting and film is a vital part of life for Jesse with his Indigenous heritage deeply rooted in the oral tradition culture of his Pueblo Indian lineage and growing up in a creative household of art, film, and story.


Littlebird’s provocative paintings have gained recognition in the Southwest art scene with several solo exhibitions and group shows during 2018-2020 and with several collectors commissioning his work during the tumultuous year of Covid. He is a Sundance Institute Full Circle Fellow, Andy Warhol Foundation recipient, and Assistant Director of Hamaatsa: an indigenous learning center non-profit.

“My work is inspired by teachings, prophecies and stories that are common among Earthly rooted people. I delve into the inner workings of what makes up thoughts, choices and actions of humankind, past, present and future. Experiences that interest me are encounters with miracles and mass exchanges of energy that can be represented in a field of pace and color. For example, what would a genocide look like with a vibrant composition of primary colors? How could the death of an eternal being be represented as sacred and placed on a pedestal, martyred and sainted by the artist.”
