  • Saying hi from Georgia

    Hi! My name is subeeds and I've just joined this forum. My Grandfather was Cheyenne. I used to love spending summers with him. He taught me a lot, even though I was too young to realize it at the time. The only computer access I have is at work, so my time here will be limited. On my next day off, I will go to the library, where I will be able to explore this site some more. So for now, nice meeting you. Eited for a P.S. I am also a beader, just getting a good start at it, so I would be very interested in hearing from any other beaders here. Thanks

    Take nothing for granted. Life can change irrevocably in a heartbeat.

    I will not feed the troll-well, I will try.

    Welcome to the!

    Glad you have Grandfather was Cheyenne.

    That's good to learning about computer.

    Yeah, I learned how to bead work last 22 years ago. Bead work is alot of work to do! But it's very important to have beads work on NDN leather outfits, moccasins, Medicine Bags, peace pipe bags, Arrows with Bow carry cases with fringes and others.

    I ordered Native American employee to make beadwork on the peace pipe bag, peace pipe with beads & fringes and lighter with leather & fringe and Eagle beadwork on the side of the lighter. She told me it'll take about 2 months or so to finish her job for me.....

    Her name is Annette Elkins Brown and her Native American store address is: in Alvin, Texas. That's pretty close to my house.

        Teaching youth to bead
        by Hamitta Malancha
        I have been involved in many youth camps over the years. There have been attempts by a few instructors to teach beading. I thought the classes were unsuccessful. While I have only beaded a few pieces in my lifetime to get by with my regalia I am good with children. I am thinking it would be best to...

        Getting started with beadwork....
        by Suzizila
        Hello everyone! I was wondering at what age do you think children would better ready to learn how to do beadwork? Since i bead already, I thought that it might be fun to teach children to do this. At my local library, I found a book that has a simple lazy stitched wrist band (about 3 or 4 rows), but...

        Beadwork: Lifestyle or Chore?
        by Wojapi4Me
        I've been talking with some people lately about beadwork and how it fits into their lives. I know some people really view beadwork as a chore or a necessity that they have to do to pow wow, but to me its just a part of my life. I love doing beadwork, and usually bead about 4 hours a night. I always...

        Formal introduction!

        Boozhoo niiiji-bimaadiziig!

        I have been a member here for quite a while (joined a year or two ago but never posted/rarely visited) and just started posting a few weeks ago - I've been enjoying myself so far, I sort of skipped a formal introduction though so I thought I would do so.
