Weaving & Beads
| As far back as I can remember I felt something
different and special in my heart. I had a feeling for the
land, trees, animals and even rocks. In 1986, I met my
biological father and he told me I was part Lakota. It
all made sense.
Even though weaving is more
I had a yearning to learn to weave. A Kickapoo auntie taught me how
to bead, along with making moccasins and ribbon dresses. I took my first
weaving class from a Diné woman.
In 1993, I entered the School of Fine Arts, Textile Design, at the University of
Kansas. At the time I was unable to complete my Bachelor of Fine Arts.
Now that I am living in Omaha, Nebraska, I have entered the Fine Arts program at
Nebraska University -- Omaha to complete my studies.
