Joseph Chamberlain was an Artist, Motivational Speaker, Activist and Recovery Coach  promoting sobriety and well-being in the Native community. ​He was a member of the Yankton Sioux Tribe of South Dakota, born to parents Earl Fredrick and Myrtle Saint Pierre of Greenwood, South Dakota.

Joe was a multi-talented self- taught artist who's work tells the stories of his childhood, his people and his world. He worked in the mediums of pen, ink, watercolor and acrylic to create drawings, murals, art work for clothing, books, album covers, commissioned art for Tribes, companies, patrons and private collectors.

As a Recovery Coach, Joe promoted sobriety and well-being in the Native community for the past 23 years and has helped many people see the Red Road. A true servant leader, Joe’s compassion, generosity and grit was inspiring and his big laugh was infectious! 

For the past 16 years, Joe’s proudest accomplishment was being “Big Poppa” to his grandson LJ, whom he raised as a single parent/grandparent since birth.  


Joe, age 60, passed away on August 13, 2022 at his home in Tulsa, Oklahoma after a brief battle with liver cancer. Joe leaves behind his community, friends, family and his grandson LJ.  

This site is dedicated to Joe’s memory with profits from all art sales going to his grandson LJ.
