SUSANNE STEWART “Her Colors Are Good”

Apsaalooke (Crow)

 

“My entire family created art and I’ve been beading for over 50 years now.  When I was 12 years old, my relative Margie Yellowtail shared with me her skills, and taught me how to make beautiful, beaded items.  I give thanks and pay homage to her for giving me such an amazing gift of tradition.  I hope to honor her and pay it forward.  My dream is that younger, creative minds will look to the rich heritage they come from and be inspired to create.  I strive to be creative every day, as it brings me great joy, and I hope to do my art till I depart.”
