Bently Spang is a Northern Cheyenne born on the Crow Indian Reservation in 1960. He has an MFA from the University of Wisconsin Madison and has taught at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
Spang's work, writes Edie Adelstein, "calls for...the public to become more educated about Native American culture."

Paul Whiting: "My wife and I ran a gallery here in Billings, Montana, and we featured a show of Bently's work a few years ago. He is serious about what he does but he also has a great sense of humor and satire. A delightful human being."
