Mr. Keeler, spyboy of the Apache Hunters Tribe, is known for developing his own style of beading in concentric arcs, giving a truly unique texture to all of his forms. As Spy Boy, Mr. Keeler plays an important role in the ritual parade on Mardi Gras, St Joseph’s Day, and Super Sunday. He goes out before the tribe and especially the Big Chief to scout for other tribes on the path and to send word back to the Big Chief via the Flag Boy.
