Monte Yellow Bird

White Shield, ND

Residing in Rio Rancho, NM

Within his lifetime, Monte Yellow Bird Sr, AKA Black Pinto Horse, has experienced life through a series of passions that have assisted to define & redefine him; teacher, horse trainer, martial and visual artist.


Black Pinto Horse creates to educate and shares, “There are so many stories untold- the issues we face, the incongruities that have occurred, our history and the true heartbeat of our heritage.  At its core, lies a harmonic balance between humanity and nature which I like to showcase using color representation and symbolism.”
