Our understanding is that Roy is not Native American, though he does incorporate some Native American and mythic imagery in his work. He did paint the murals near Chloride, Arizona while taking a break from working on his Masters degree in Creative Writing and Fine Arts at Utah State University, and he did work in mining, in the area around Chloride. They're great murals on the rocks there, and we love Chloride!
