This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Harriet K. Simons. She and her husband, Adam, are collectors of Native American art of the Southwest, and know personally most of the artists represented in their collection.

Raymond Naha left this world in 1974. He was from Polacca, which is at the foot of First Mesa, on the Hopi Reservation in Arizona. He was best known for his wonderful paintings of Katsinim (Kachinas) in true settings as they appear in the villages of the Hopi. His grandson, also Raymond Naha, is a young man who is following his grandfather's footsteps and producing his own vision of the Katsinin that still appear to dance in the plazas.
The following is from "Who Was Who in American Art" by Peter Falk and "American Indian Painters" by Jeanne Snodgrass:

Raymond Naha was a painter who preferred acrylics. He was born on the Hopi Reservation in Arizona, and in high school was an art student of Fred Kabotie. He had work published in "Arizona Highways" magazine and exhibited in Scottsdale, Arizona, at the Indian Arts and Crafts Exhibition; in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the Indian Artists Exhibition, and in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the Art Show. He won the Grand Award (first place) in the Scottsdale Exhibition.

In addition to several museums, his work is in the Department of the Interior in Washington DC.
