BLACK NDNs. "If you know I have a history, you will respect me."

Artist Statement: I grew up in Cheyenne, Wyoming which holds one of the largest rodeo  events in the country each summer. When I was a kid I treasured going to  the powwow’s held by the Lakota Plains Nation. I loved watching the  women’s hide dresses sway as they danced gracefully. The adornment of  the powwow costumes totally fascinated me. I now realize the impact the  powwows have had on my work through the years. The beading, the jewelry,  the feathers, and cowrie shells are very prominent features in my work  as an artist. I primarily work as a mixed media artist. My passion for  exploring issues particularly in the Black community has led me to  create series of works that are evocative and engaging. I aspire to  leave a legacy of challenging and thought provoking work that will  entice the viewer and inspire younger artists. [SOURCE]
