"In 7th grade, my Lakota teacher Mrs. High Elk taught us students how to bead. I've always been surrounded by the art form as my older sister Collins (who is also an artist on the BYELLOWTAIL Collective!) creates beautiful work as well, and she inspires me to want to bead. I would love to see the arts continued in our communities as a positive resource for our youth and the next generations to follow."
