About the artist Harry Seekyesva, Hopi Pueblo, very little is published. He is listed in Snodgrass with only his name, birth date unknown, and that he was living and painting in 1930. The only collection mentioned is the Museum of the American Indian, in which one painting is referenced as from the John Louw Nelson collection and one from the James Economos (Santa Fe dealer and collector) collection. He was included in a 1947 Philbrook exhibit.
The other artists associated with the collection (Riley Sunrise Quoyavema and T. T. Dashee) were contemporaries of Fred Kabotie and Waldo Mootzka and all seemed to have studied under Kabotie, so it is quite likely that Seekyesva did too.
