About the Art:
“I am moved by the original artists and ancestral designs of the tribes I come from. I am in awe of the way our people have always created impeccable works of art to adorn our loved ones, even with limited access to resources and supplies. This piece features the Apsaalooke hour glass, which is a distinct indicator of the Crow people. Often seen paired with elaborate beadwork and bold colors, I chose to use this design in a minimal way as a nod to the original incised buffalo hide parfleche used by our people during the days of early contact.” - Bethany Yellowtail
