Helen Goodteacher is an indigenous artist and member of the Nez Perce Tribe with Sioux and Ponca descent. She grew up on the Nez Perce Reservation in Lapwai, Idaho, in a household of art; both parents attended art school and supported her desire to follow them in the creative profession. She is inspired by the Nez Perce "Dreamer" style and, in her own work, focuses on indigenous advocacy, culture, and self-acceptance. Helen owns a small business, Forward Native Works, which specializes in logo design and graphic art.
