BIOGRAPHY

Kit Julianto, Yooti, is an enrolled member of the Shoshone Paiute Tribes of the Duck Valley Indian Reservation and a descendent of the Navajo nation. He holds a BFA in Studio Arts from the Institute of American Indian Arts of Santa Fe, New Mexico (2010) and a MFA in Secondary Education from Grand Canyon University (2018). He teaches Art, grades Pre-K to 12th at the Owyhee Combined Schools in Elko County School District. He believes in empowering youth to express themselves through different mediums such as painting, watercolor, pottery, drawing and art foundations in school and through workshops. Other outlets of using his artistry and culture are by presenting Native American workshops on how to play the Native flute, singing and hand drum making. His works reflect upon Native American culture, music, tradition, and storytelling, through various mediums, vibrant colors, and texture. His works of art have been shared throughout many Native and non Native communities, galleries, and gatherings.

This programing is supported in part by the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF), the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Idaho Commission on the Arts. Special thanks to Indigenous Idaho Alliance, the Riverside Hotel, and First Interstate Bank.
