In 2013 he completed on an oral history book of his family through four verbatum oral histories from both the Native American and Hungarian heritage. Time and Memories, Histories and Stories of A Shinnecock-Apache-Hungarian Family, Compiled and Edited by David Bunn Martine, released in 2013, and available for sale at www.lulu.com, contains oral histories from David's Grandmother, Alice Osceola Bunn Martinez; uncle, David Walkus Martinez; mother, Marjorie Carola Martinez; and father, Thomas Siklos.

Living on the Shinnecock Indian Reservation, the reservation of the Shinnecock Indian Nation, David absorbed the history of his heritage, both the ancient Algonquian cultures from the New England woodlands of the East Coast United States, as well as the Apache, indigenous people of Arizona and New Mexico. He has also sung in choirs and plays piano in response to the Hungarian heritage of his father. David's maternal grandfather, Charles Martine, Jr. was a Nednai-Chiricahua Apache, born at Fort Bowie, Arizona, a prisoner-of-war with Geronimo's band of Apache Indians until 1913. He was raised at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. David's family history is very rich both on the Native American and Hungarian sides. His Shinnecock great-grandfather, Charles Sumner Bunn, was a master wood-carver of shore-bird decoys and was a professional guide and hunter. Charles' father was a whaler who sailed around the world participating in the New England whaling industry which flourished in the early 19th century. David's uncle was a commercial artist, wood-carver and photographer. David's Hungarian grandfather, Arpad Siklos, was a famous architect who designed the Vatican Embassy in Budapest and was knighted by the Pope in the Order of Saint Sylvester. Recently, he has diversified his artistic interests, working in Native American museums, currently, Director/Curator of the Shinnecock Nation Cultural Center and Museum, producing several mural commissions as well as book illustrations, working in large scale wood sculptures, multi-media pieces and spiritual subject matter as well. David's earliest artistic influences were members of his own family: his uncle, David Martinez, his mother and father, and great-grandfather, Charles Bunn. Later, he learned to appreciate the influence of another distant relative the great Warm Springs Chiricahua Apache artist and sculptor, Allan Houser (Haozous), who was one of the earliest and best Native American painters in the Southwest, later becoming the primary influence in the resurgence of stone-sculpture among Native American youth while teaching at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the narrative realism of Norman Rockwell, the Wyeths and the great Mexican, Italian and Dutch painters. David studied briefly with Constantin Alajalov in the 1980's.
