Narciso Abeyta
Thomas Warder (03/31/2006)
I am his stepson and noted that there are some inaccuracies in his biography by Jeanne Snodgrass. He was never a Code Talker during WWII. I suppose I have a wealth of information that makes it difficult for me to start. I will answer any questions that people have about my stepfather, Ciso. Tom Warder

Narciso "Ciso" Platero Abeyta aka Ha-so-de
Frank Turley (07/05/2003)
I was acquainted briefly with Narciso by way of his son, Tony. Tony is our son-in-law, my wife's name being Juanita (nee Marcus of Taos Pueblo). Narciso often signed his work in caps with hyphens between syllables, as in HA-SO-DE. After WW II, there was a hiatus where Narciso was not greatly productive with his painting. He worked in Gallup for a number of years in vocational placement. Much of his painting was done duting the 1960s and 1970s. His paintings are dynamic, often in bold colors, depicting mythic figures, the creation story, animals, landscapes and hunting scenes. According to son Tony, he has work in the National Gallery of Art. Narciso fathered two children who made their way in the world of art: Tony and clay sculptress, Elizabeth. Narciso's funeral was held at the community of his birth, Cañoncito, New Mexico (now renamed Tóhajiilee).
