A little inspiration from Tamarind collaborating artist Dyani White Hawk, who exquisitely renders the quill patterns of traditional Lakota moccasins, while also managing a humorous title.

She writes, “As a woman of Lakota and European ancestry my life experiences have been a continual negotiation of both Western and Indigenous educations, value systems, and worldviews. Through the amalgamation of symbols and motifs derivative of both Lakota and Western abstraction, my artwork examines, dissects, and patches back together pieces of each in a means to provide an honest representation of self and culture.”
