Doug Hyde (b. 1946) was born in Hermiston, Oregon. His bronze and stone sculptures frequently represent historic events and the stories told to him during his youth. As a student at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, he studied under and was befriended by seminal American Indian sculptor Allan Houser. His work is represented in collections throughout the country, including the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., which permanently displays his 10 ½ foot bronze, "Chief Joseph." In 2003, Hyde was awarded the New Mexico Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts.
