Stanley Hawkins-Good Shield


Stanley's signature line is custom pool cues that incorporate traditional Native design aspects. Each pool stick is handmade individually, and may take up to year to produce. By using contrasting woods and using various techniques, each custom pool cue that Stanley designs is absolutely stunning. He developed an affinity for wood work as a result of a long history in carpentry and working in a factory where he learned to operate various types of machinery. Over time, his artistic talent grew to include various other mediums, such as Native American regalia and jewelry.

Stanley’s unique creations placed 1st in the Traditional Art category at the 2015 Black Hills Pow-wow. He also placed 3rd in the Traditional Art category at the 2014 Black Hills Pow-wow.
