Some of our past creations from BeadSpirit Designs. I make our family pipes and what I have left over I carve into our jewelry so nothing of the stone is wasted. I also save all the pipestone dust & gift it to my sister, as she mixes it & uses it to paint her drawings with.

Grandfather: They have a whole month now where the people here honor & celebrate you and all the indigenous peoples of turtle island. The people still suffer, but there are many good things happening as well. Many things have changed and many of the old ways are gone now, but our people still live in the constant of hope & love, which can never be conquered because it is of the spirit and always remains, as we will. Katisdah. Ashoge.

Trying to bring a smile during war is an arduous task. Pic is Kenneth H., 1st/10th CAV, 2nd Platoon, Vietnam--1970-71.
