Kakiki ...the illusive atrist

I love Kakiki’s work and have found so little available on the artist.
Some say kakiki is a male, some a woman. Some say from 1970’s El Paso , Texas, others from Arizona or New Mexico.
Does anyone out there in Turquoise land have more definitive information?

My understanding is that it was a group of artist. This is a picture I found on the web when I was researching.


Thank you AC,
I really appreciate your help.
That is wonderful documentation and perhaps explains why some folks feel" Kakiki" was a woman, some a man. If a group of artists that might explain it.
What was the source material of this photo…I have not been able to locate that photo?
So nice of you to respond, thanks again
