“Captain Paiute”

August 17


This is an exhibit of sketches, drawings, and prints by artist Theodore Tso. Tso is an enrolled member of the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe and also has ties to the Navajo (Dinรฉ). He is also the creative mind behind Captain Paiute: Indigenous Defender of the Southwest. Captain Paiute wields the power of Pah (water) and grapples with evil men, like Bad Medicine.

As a youth, Theo was drawn into the world of comic book superheroes and villains. However, he noticed the absence of strong Indigenous characters and saw that most Native Americans were sidekicks or stereotypical mystics. While still high school, he envisioned Captain Paiute as a corrective to the lack of representation typically found in traditional comic books, cartoons, and movies. Theo took years honing his craft and sharpening his skills with the pencil and now draws amazing images that spark the imagination. Today, Tso is the owner and operator of War Paint Studios, which houses Captain Paiute Comics.

On exhibit at Clark County Library from August 17 through November 5, 2023.
