  • Artist have a unique experience on the Pine Ridge. I have seen many people do different forms of folkart and I have seen some good paintings too. Valery Brown Eyes is my cousin in-law and she has been developing her trade for many years. I was a faithful customer for years as I would buy necklaces and then turn around and give them away to guests. I still buy the occassional piece but I have become a snob when it comes to art. I believe the artist are a powerful group of people across the Reservation. Sometimes it pays to look at the art and then decide how much you want to pay. The last item I bought was a very nice colorful necklace with a cross. I gave it away. The piece I bought before that was a Dream Catcher at Wounded Knee in the shape of a Tipi and I got a story with the sale. I gave it to a good friend from Washington DC because she was a true friend and an inspiration.
    Lakota Creations is one place you can always find quality items for sale and you need to understand something, these artists are in it full-time. They work endlessly on their trade and I believe they help our local economy to get along. They sell to outsiders who are seeking to understand Wounded Knee. Now if you come to Wounded Knee be careful because there are people who are out to scam you with stories and organizations most notably youth organizations. I am not fooled i usually walk away and try to help my friends to understand who is trying to scame money from them. If you are looking for a good person come and find Valery Brown Eyes and let her know I sent you.
