Robert Hashke-Yil-Cale Chee (1937-1971) was a Navajo artist who practiced the traditional flat style painting of the American Southwest. His story and that of his teacher, well-known Apache artist Allan Hauser, illustrate some of the egregious indignities suffered by Native Americans well into the 20th century. His watercolors and gouaches are of traditional Southwest and Navajo scenes and rituals. They are included in the collections of the Smithsonian and the Southwest Museum.
