Tatánka Nunpa Owe Okele means ….Following the Two Bulls Tracks.


The Rapid City Arts Council is pleased to bring you Tatánka Nunpa Owe Okele, a Two Bulls family exhibit, opening on November 9, 2018 and on display until March 9, 2019. A reception will be held on Friday, November 30 from 5-7pm. The show will be located in the Sen. Stan Adelstein & Lynda K. Clark Gallery at the Dahl Arts Center in downtown Rapid City.


Tatánka Nunpa Owe Okele loosely translates as “Following the Two Bulls Tracks”. Family and kinship ties are very important to the Oglala Lakota people. The Two Bulls are an Oglala Lakota family of artists and musicians originating from the Red Shirt Table community on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

This group exhibition features the artwork and music by 17 members of the Two Bulls family. Artwork ranges from painting, cartoons, graphic design and illustration, ceramic and plaster sculpture, printmaking, mixed-media work, leather work, dolls, bead work and other forms of jewelry.

Along with individual artworks from each of these artists, there will also be collaborative pieces included in the show with multi-generational artists working together to create new artwork. The Wake Singers will perform at the artists’ reception. They are a contemporary recording group made up of several members of the Two Bulls Family.
