Diane Tells His Name - Bio
Enrolled member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe of Pine Ridge, South Dakota, Lakota Doll Artist Diane Tells His Name (Oglala) has been crafting dolls, stitching beadwork and making sketches and other art since childhood. Some of the dolls she creates has a story included. Each has a personality of its own.
Having gone back to college at age 45, she completed her education and worked for many years as the Artifact Collection Manager and Tribal Research Librarian for a Tribal Museum in San Diego. Exposure to the history and beauty of the items in the museum rekindled her interest in creating her own art.
One of Diane's earliest creations, Fur Trader's Grand-daughter has been accepted for accession into the National Museum of the American Indian Museum (Smithsonian) Washington, DC. and she will be working with the collections department to accession another in the future. She also has dolls in collections at museums and for sale in museums and galleries with collectable art. Private doll collectors and other Native American Artists own and collect Diane's handmade Indian dolls.
Diane lives in North San Diego County with her cowboy husband of many years. Her five grown children and eleven (of her 13) grand-children all live within a short drive. Powwowing, herb gardening and the fulfilling and interesting life being involved in the Indian Community in San Diego keeps the family busy.
