Biography Lois Smoky
She was the only woman in a highly talented group of Kiowa Indian artists encouraged in 1917 by Susan Peters, from the Anadarko Indian Agency in Oklahoma. In 1927, Lois joined the others in this group and lived and painted in Norman at the University of Oklahoma. They were especially encouraged by Professor Oscar Jacobson, head of the art school, and in the 1930s, the group became internationally known for the bold style and knowledge of Native American ways.
Following her painting career she focused on bead work, establishing a reputation in that area.
