In 1961 Warrior attended the second Indian art seminar hosted by the University of Arizona and supported by the Rockefeller Foundation. Among the other students at the seminar was Fritz Scholder. Two distinguished artists whom have taken wholly different paths in preserving their traditions. In 1978 Warrior's painting Storyteller was the winner of the Wolf Robe Hunt Award for the best traditional style Native American painting at the 33rd Annual Indian Artist's Exhibition at the Philbrook Art Center, Tulsa, Oklahoma. Warrior is adamant in the accurate depiction of tribal ways, and his paintings are among the permanent collections at the Smithsonian and Philbrook Museums.
