Sketching out some ideas...
Just checked my mail & cant believe how awesome these shirts look. Got these from @ntvsclothing and I love the design collaboration they did with @mauloabook nothing but love & respect for y’all! Proceeds go towards Mauna Kea k the fight against TMT. So far they have raised close to $2,000. To all my friends on the island my heart & prayers are with you all. Aloha wau iā 'oe. ❤️🤙🏽🔺 #MaunaKea #ntvsclothing #OneLove #Family
Little bit of a late post but a happy beading post nonetheless. 🤙🏽😁 Made this bad boy for a good friend & happy I was able to give finally it to him. Took a little while due to my health & other obligations. But it was an honor to bring this idea to life. So proud of the way it came out & I had to share it with you all here on FB. Lol A lot of love and meaning went into this—from family, to the outlook of life & even some representation of spirituality. Carlos Calica I hope you like & enjoy your medallion. For each color has its meaning & each design that was made has a story. It’s pretty cool seeing you wear it during your trip while joining hands with others & taking that stand at Mauna Kea & the fight against TMT. I’m proud of you and I know all your friends & family are too. Ive told you before how it warms my heart seeing you continue what your loved ones did before you & it still remains true today. Safe travels on your way back home my friend. You’re doing a
Had to pull through here to grab myself a grilled cheese. 🧀🥑🍅
Here are the pictures of the baby board I did this last month. Remember taking a class with my mom & learning from her & a couple of elders on how they’re made back when I was 10-13 years old. Was meaning to repair some of the ones we have in my family, and when the mother came to me & asked for one to be made it told me that this particular baby board was meant to be created. So blessed to be able to bring this one to life. Rochelle thank you for allowing me to create a board for your baby boy forever wishing you & your family many happy & loving memories. #BabyBoard #nativeamerican #BabyBoy #madewithlove #Sewing #Beadwork

Lilóoyce Pikéenm Léeheyn! 💐🤗💕 (Happy Mother’s Day!)
Lilóoyce Pikéenm Léeheyn to my mother Lisa Gonzales! Mom, I love you with all my heart & then some, “to the moon & back again”, and to infinity times infinity. I’m proud of the memories you’ve made with me from dance classes with jazz, hip hop, ballet, to memories on the powwow trail when dancing fancy, traditional & jingle. Memories on the coast hunting for seashells & watching the sunset to driving up into the mountains & looking at the stars all night while making s’mores. You’ve taught me strength & courage during the times you took care of me & my siblings, the times you cared for our cousin Tyrone & the girls, and the many times I’ve seen you work as a social worker on multiple reservations. Íice, íim ‘ee wées heté’ew. ‘Íin ‘ee héetewise. (Mom, you are special. I love you.) I hope you have a good day today. Lilóoyce Pikéenm Léeheyn (Happy Mother’s Day) to all the other mothers out there today. You are the backbone of your family, the

To those who may not know May 5th is not just known as Cinco De Mayo but also as a day to show recognition & in memory of MMIW. MMIW stands for Missing & Murdered iIndigenous Women. The abuse, abduction & murder of our girls, women & two spirit has been a ongoing torment since the first settles came to the Americas. Some facts for you? In 2014 The Royal Canadian Mountain Police reported that during 1980-2012 the number of MMMIW stood at 1,200. But Indigenous women groups had documentation of that number being over 4,000. And in 2016 that number had grown to 5,712 of just known incidents involving MMIW. So to all the two spirit, the sisters, daughters, aunties, mothers, and grandmothers. For all the ones who lives were taken, who have yet to be found, for anyone who has gone through abuse in any form today is for you. My heart & prayers are always & forever with each of you. #youaregonebutnotforgotten #RedDress #May5 #MMIW #MMIWG #sayhername #saytheirnames #rememberthem
