Osiyo(Hi in Cherokee). As I have stated before, I am very proud of my American Indian heritage. I am Cherokee and Sioux on my mother's side, and I love learning everything I can about my heritage. So in this blog I will feature American Indian items that to the best of my knowledge were made by people with American Indian heritage. No cheap Chinese made dreamcatchers here!
