He illustrated a number of books as well. A renowned Navajo painter whose murals decorate the Navajo Council Chambers in Window Rock, Arizona and the Department of the Interior Building in Washington, DC. Gerald attended the Santa Fe Indian School from 1954-1958, where he studied Native American painting under excellent instruction.
