Percy Tsisete Sandy Kai-Sa Red Moon Fine Art Native American Paintings Paintings Zuni Pueblo signaturePercy Tsisete Sandy (1918-1974) Kai-Sa - Red Moon was born at Zuni Pueblo in 1918. He later moved from Zuni to Taos, due to internal conflicts connected to his depiction of sensitive religious subjects. He died in Taos in 1974.

Kai-Sa attended elementary and secondary schools of the village of Zuni, then went on to Santa Fe to take a year’s postgraduate work in art at the Indian School. Kai-Sa was surely influenced while at the Indian School in Santa Fe, whether by artists he encountered there or by paintings he saw there.

Navajo (Diné) influence is seen in some of his paintings, influence of Taos artist Pop Chalee is evident in at least one of his paintings. He has used Hopi and Rio Grande Puebloan styles as well as Navajo (Diné) and Apache.
