About

Working to keep traditions alive.

My late husband and I started this shop with the idea to help keep the old ways alive.
I love the Native American culture and all the different items used in ceremonies and dance. I have studied and researched to learn more about the objects I create. Each bead is added one at a time. There are hundreds of beads on my rattles and fan handles. I spend hours and days to complete many of my beaded objects.
There is a spirit to creating. The objects that I gather have spirit and often guide me in the creation process. I am constantly learning. It is a blessing to be guided by spirit. There is so much positive energy in the gifts of nature. I hope to pass this good energy and good spirit along to the ones who purchase my creations.

    I love the Native American culture and do my best to create items related to that culture. Each bead is added one at a time. I feel the energy of the items as I create them. I hope new owner's feel the energy too. Every item in my shop is hand made.

I am very pleased that you have visited my shop. All items are handmade by me and most are one of a kind. The fan handles and rattles are beaded using the gourd/peyote stitch. If you have any questions about an item, please send me a convo before purchase. I hope you enjoy shopping with Kicking Bear. The paintings and prints were done by my late husband. All of my items are cleansed with sage and cedar.
