About Marty Two Bulls

Marty Two Bulls Sr. is an Oglala Lakota originally from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. He spent his childhood in Rapid City, South Dakota and was graduated from Rapid City’s Central High School in 1981. He attended college in Denver at the Colorado Institute of Art, which gave him the technical skills to land a job in his hometown with the local television station, a NBC affiliate, as an assistant to the art director. It was at his high school newspaper (the Pine Needle) that Two Bulls first started drawing editorial cartoons. His ‘editoons’ started out as a hobby but within a few years the hobby turned into a career.

Two Bulls began as a journalist in weekly newspapers and then moved on to dailies. He accepted a position the Rapid City Journal as graphics editor and he served on the editorial board for seven years. Two Bulls then moved on to the Sioux Falls Argus Leader as graphics editor for six more years. He eventually left newspapers and returned to college to finish his BFA degree, freelance as a cartoonist, and pursue a fine art career. He has drawn editorial cartoons for the Indian Country Today Media Network since 2001, an archive of his work can be found at: https://indiancountrymedianetwork.com/category/news/cartoons

His work also appears in the newspapers; Indian Country Today (Martin, SD), Mandan Hidatsa Arikara Times (New Town, ND), Cherokee One Feather (Cherokee, NC), Sincangu Scribe (Rosebud SD) and News from Indian Country (Hayward, WI).

His work focuses on issues of political interest to Native peoples, a vital niche market. “Native Americans have been historically persecuted and marginalized by the dominant culture, which has reduced them to a minority in their own lands. Said Two Bulls “I create my cartoons for my people and if non-Natives are touched by the work, then all the better”. It is important to him that the message of the editorial is made known to all peoples.

Marty currently works as a senior freelance artist, college art professor, and graphic designer. He enjoys teaching, painting, and sculpting. His website is m2bulls.com

    I would have instead cartooned Elizabeth Warren in that canoe wearing a dear skin costume with a Cherokee emblem on her upper chest, and where the Dollar sign is on the canoe, I would have place “1/32.” For an oar I would have replaced that with broom.
    The New York Slimes to unMotherly Jones vouched strongly for that libtard marxist. The New England Historic Genealogical Society backtracked on Warren’s ancestry, saying it has “no proof” of Cherokee descent.

    I like the Make America Great Again agenda, but we have hindrances from both the Democrats(historically the confederate party), and the RINO’s(Republican in Name Only) faction within the Republican party and those would be the globalist socialists(or globalistsm in general).

    I loved Pres Trump’s honouring of the Code Talkers, but the MSM failed to show the whole video of which you can find in full via YouTube. Yes DC and US public in general have a lot to learn that it wasn’t just the Dine who were Code Talkers. He may not be perfect, but he’s done much better than Clinton or Obama for the USA on economy, jobs, and trying to bring fairness on tax cuts(see whitehouse.com)

    Ron Williams – Thanks for your insights. This thing with Warren has a few sides. If she benefited by claiming her Native ancestry it would be of interest to see what she has done for Native People. I think I’ll see if I can find anything on the internet.

  3. Mariano R. Padilla Jr. says:

    I feel Trump is a moron and a RACIST, He should be Impeached for Colluding and with the Russians and obstruction of Justice. He has not been a Role Model or Presidential at all!!!!!! Poor Excuse for for a President…..
