Biography from Savvy Collector:
Abel Sanchez, also known as Oqwa Pi (Red Cloud), was born in 1899 at San Ildefonso Pueblo in northern New Mexico.  He was educated at Santa Fe Indian School, studying art under Dorothy Dunn.  He was later commissioned to paint murals for the school.

Abel Sanchez returned to San Ildefonso where he was a farmer and painter, married, and had a large family. He was held in high regard by the people of his pueblo and was elected governor of San Ildefonso for six terms.

In his later years he and his wife lived in Santa Fe.  He died at the Los Alamos Medical Center in 1971.
