For 12 years, Mark Fischer was

involved in Native American

education, and was instrumen-

tal in establishing several Na-

tive American scholarships for

Wisconsin colleges.

He continues to be an advocate

of education by promoting the

importance of Native American

awareness through his sculp-

ture, and by his interactive sto-

rytelling with collectors and

young audiences.

Mark’s work is featured at

In a world where things are

often serious and sobering,

Oneida sculptor Mark Fischer

always manages to create hap-

piness and smiles with his

famed

Turtle Clan Art

.

Working with hand-cut copper

and silver solder, Fischer injects

a bit of whimsy and humor into

each of his works, while retain-

ing many elements of his

Oneida tribal tradition.

Pieces like

Moondancer

(left) and

Turtle Story Teller

(right) are

wonderful examples of the fun

brought to the art of the award-

winning sculptor.

Fischer is a member of the

Oneida Nation of Green Bay,

Turtle Clan. Hence,

Turtle Clan

Art
