walking on the Red road!

We have our weekly sweat lodge, and use the lava stones on a regular basis. Through time, heat and carrying they eventually begin to break down. We were getting close to needing some more.

So we approached the Otoe Missouria tribe for assistance. They agreed to help us!

Once we set the date, the tribe also loaned us one of their trailers. My brother borrowed a 1 ton truck to pull the trailer with. In November we made the trip to Albuquerque, and brought back over 500 rocks.

We recently made a trip to one of the States minimum security lock downs where a sweat lodge is allowed and delivered some grandfathers for their lodge. Maybe this will help save someone once they gain their freedom back.

We then shared some grandfathers with the Omaha tribe of Nebraska. Our tribal chairman made the gift to them. They made the trek down to Oklahoma to haul some back. This will replenish their lodges until they can make the trip to Albuquerque to gather their own.

One can only imagine how many this will help. I know that their will be blessings coming for along time to come. For this I am very thankful, and happy to have been able to do this.

Happy New Year!

It seems these years fly by anymore. 2011 came and went. I am very thankful for all the blessing received, and pray for a better 2012 for all of us.

The Christmas art show at Littlecrow's trading post was a hugh success. . Met a lot of people, made some new friends and rekindled some old friendships. Even sold some art!

I'm looking forward to 2012, and want to expand on where my art will lead me. Thinking about heading North toward South Dakota this year.

Have some plans on more new stuff I am preparing to start on. I completed all commissioned work and feel like I can once again work at my own pace. I will keep you posted to everything as it develops.

Blessings, Sid
