I think my llamas are outside. As they are invisible, it is hard to tell.

Ew, I hope that was just some spilled menudo you stepped in and nothing else.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Veteran's Day.

Free Frybread for all Veteran's, and everyone else too!

Hi folks:

Had a fabulous Remembrance Day here in the Prairies. Weather was brisk but sunny and we didn't freeze our whatsits and do-das off (although feeling is just returning to my toes today). We had a great lunch spread put on by the legion and Warrant/Sgt/Officer mess. I don't normally drink alcohol but I do make an exception for Remembrance Day when I toast our absent friends and besides I really do love Moose Milk.

I'm getting ready to start my belt for my new regalia... kind of excited as I managed to finish some of the smaller pieces and I've found most of the materials I need to work on it all winter.

Have a great day folks.

Did you know I used to be a Japanese wannabee? I might have gotten away with it too if I could only speak Japanese. I never got around to making my kimono, but I sometimes eat sushi.

A diet cola and vegetable sushi, please. No raw fish for me, ew.

Hi GB,

I made my present regalia when I was 16. I was pretty green (not to mention very stubborn about knowing what I wanted even if it was the wrong tribe...lol)to what should have been a traditional dress and I made a 3 hide plains type. I painted it as opposed to beading it as a fair number of Haida outfits are painted (there's an artsy type pic of it in my album page). I picked the male and female berry colours of blueberry and raspberry. I've worn that dress for close to 30 years now and my life is so very different now to when I was a naive teenager. I'm a mom, grandmother and wife now. I've been widowed, got political, went back to school (3 times... what can I say, I liked the learning part), joined the Navy and have a heap more of life lived since I was that 16 year old girl. So now I'm ready to make a regalia for my time as a grown woman.

The dress part is going to be a two piece with the skirt in a wrap around style of the Tutchones - it'll be in deer hide ( I should use moose but availability is a problem and to be honest, I prefer working with deer - easier on my hands. I also have to be practical now as I don't have a lot of help getting dressed - daughter is away, my women kin are all gone and hubby is all thumbs - and the 3 hide dress had always been difficult to get into - especially in a tent/small space. A two piece is easier for me to dress myself these days and much easier on my back -I injured it a few years ago jumping off my ship in an abandon ship drill.

So.. white deer hide in a two piece - long sleeved top and wrap around skirt that will have some beading and some painting. For noise makers, I'll use shells, deer toes, pennies and pony glass beads. I'll be making a pair of canvas/hide/fur mukluks that will be beaded along with abalone shells worked in. The motifs that my family can use are ravens, fireweed, orcas, grizzly bear, copper, northern lights and rainbows and I'm adding the prairie rose.

I'm making a button blanket with my family crest on it. I picked non-traditional colours of lapis blue (duffle fabric) and copper (silk-taffeta) and my bead work will have those colours included. Instead of pearl buttons, I'm going to use copper pennies - with the maple leaf side showing. The copper is in honour of my great grandmother - her name was Copper Lilly. The lapis blue is because it is my happy colour. No matter how grumpy I can get, when I see this colour, the grumps go away and I feel happy.

For a head piece, I've got three or four different styles I can pick from. I've started working on a cedar root woven hat which I will then paint with one or two motifs - I'm the world's slowest weaver when it comes to these hats - it may be finished by the time my grandson goes off to university...lol). I'll also make a lighter head piece of fur, duffle and buttons and one of a copper band with beads and feathers draping the sides. I also made a barret that is a stylized version of what I see the Northern Lights to be.

I'm going to start on the belt this weekend (if I can finish the larger loom I working on for it.. the centre of the belt will be raven stealing the light, then fireweed, then orca then grizzly bear then the prairie rose.

I managed to collect molted goose feather to make a dance fan - not sure yet, what style it will be... (Haida or Tutchone) - right now, I have a raven wing for a fan - not sure if I'm going to use it with this regalia.

I'm going to borrow from both sides of my family tree - my dad's folks are N. Tutchone (dad was wolf clan) and my mum's are Haida.. both great grandfathers were Tlingit.

I think I'm going to be doing a lot more Intertribals with this regalia as it's not going to fit into any category for comp dancing LOL . Although I'm pretty sure doing a crow hop or two isn't going to offend anyone since crow is the little bro of raven. (but I'll check first and get permission for the folks who are having the pow wow.)

The elders say that your regalia should reflect who you are and tell your story - that's what makes it unique. My story didn't end when I made the first regalia - it was just starting. I'm about half way through my story now and it's time to make a change. I'm putting my dress away for my grandaughter - I doubt she'll wear it as she'll have her own regalia - but I want her to see where I started and where I ended up in this lifetime.

Wow, that sounds like SOME outfit. I'd love to see your works in progress.

I made a fancy outfit for a Tlingit girl (MissTlingitAchievment) and it was fun trying to use NW motifs as the design. I'll have to look for a pic.

Last month, at a Cali powwow we met a girl in her traditional coastal dress. The top was all shell necklaces. The skirt was buckskin covered in a lot of shells, and she had a woven hat. She danced the intertribals, then during the women's traditional she went out and did her own dance, even though she wasn't contesting.

Good luck to you!
