Flying Pig Bead work
 
Hello All! I am a long distance walker and have participated in the Flying Pig Half Marathon (Cincinnati, Ohio) for 5 years straight. This year I was playing around with design elements for Flying Pig bead work. It tells the story of race day, with the hills, the participants(a flying pig) surrounded with prayers(eagle feathers), and the sun coming up on race morning. Someone I shared the designs with wasn't sure how it would b accepted at powwows. Is there anybody here, or any tribe that would be offended if someone were to wear a flying pig beaded set at a powwow? Thanks!

Hey, Suz. That sounds interesting. Are you doing the design in applique on leather? I don't know how other people might like your design, but I have seen regalia with a lot of different themes included in it. One lady who bought beads from me had worked her horse's image into her dress on the back.
