Aloysius Dreaming Bear


Although Aloysius studied the traditional Lakota techniques of beading, he creates his own designs taking by those teachings a step further. In describing his beadwork, he states that his pieces are “for the modern man and woman.” He wants his beadwork to reflect not only the time we are living as modern Lakota people, but also the beauty and resilience of young Lakota youth. This is what sets his designs apart from those before him - his artwork comes with a purpose and a powerful message.
