Mary Morez

Born in Tuba City, Arizona as a member of the Navajo nation, Mary Morez led most of her life in Phoenix, where she became an illustrator, fashion designer, painter, graphic artist, draftsman and museum curator. Morez' parents died when she was young, and she was placed under the care of her grandparents on the Reservation. They sent her as a young girl to the Phoenix Indian School, where she was adopted by a non-Indian couple and learned about a culture much different from her own. However, she made great effort to stay close to her own heritage through communication with her grandparents and extensive study.

After attending the Indian School, she enrolled in the Maricopa Technical College and the Ray Vogue School of Art in Chicago.   ...  Displaying 750 of 1959 characters.
