A Navajo painter and muralist, Quincy Tahoma was also one of the Indian Code Talkers, who played such a critical part in the winning of World War II in the Pacific.  He was born near Tuba City, Arizona and given the name Tahoma, which in Navajo means "Water Edge".  Early in his career, his paintings were serene and soothing in tone, but increasingly they had subject matter of bloody wars and men killing animals.

He attended the Albuquerque Indian School from 1936 to 1940, (showing 500 of 2414 characters).
