Kai-Sa was surely influenced while at the Indian School in Santa Fe, whether by artists he encountered there or by paintings he saw there. Navajo (Diné) influence is seen in some of his paintings, influence of Taos artist Pop Chalee is evident in at least one of his paintings. He has used Hopi and Rio Grande Puebloan styles as well as Navajo (Diné) and Apache.
