Diacon, an enrolled citizen of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation studied flat style painting at Bacone College, will also talk about the history of this form Indigenous art.

The flat style of painting was first introduced by a group of Native artists who came to be known as the Kiowa Six at the University of Oklahoma under the tutelage of Oscar B. Jacobson. It was further established at Bacone College in Muskogee, by such artists as Acee Blue Eagle, Woody Crumbo, and Dick West.
