This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Big Bow James Auchiah was born in 1906 near Medicine Park, Oklahoma. The grandson of the medicine man and artist Red Tipi and of Chief Satanta, he was the last surviving "Kiowa Five" artist at the time of his death in 1975 in Carnegie, Okla. Auchiah became one of the noted "Kiowa Five Artists" after the departure of Louise Smokey in 1927 and went on to achieve international acclaim in the late 1920s as one of the first "modern" Indian painters.

His paintings are in the public collections of the Indian Arts and Crafts Board at the Department of the Interior, Washington, D.C., the Oklahoma University Museum of Art, the Gilcrease Museum, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Castillo San Marcos National Monument, St. Augustine, Fla. He was one of the Native American painters who created the murals in the Department of the Interior-Washington, D.C.

His work exhibited widely in the United States and abroad, Auchiah was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation by the Indian Arts and Crafts Board, U. S. Department of the Interior, 1966. He received commissions for murals for St. Patrick's Mission School (ca. 1927-29), Oklahoma Historical Society, Oklahoma City (1934) and the U. S. Department of the Interior, Washington, D.C., 1938.
