They will be in-house to speak about the book “Crazy Horse - The Lakota Warrior's Life and Legacy” from 11am - 3pm. Join us for a lively conversation and here is your opportunity to ask questions about this legendary leader.
The Ravenshead Family: Proud father, Chris Ravenshead is joined by his twin daughters Caroline and Emilie and his other daughter Brenna. This family is fabulous with beadwork and quillwork.

She has created one-of-a-kind graduation caps, cowboy style belts (you provide the buckle, she’ll bead the leather), hatbands, moccasins and jewelry.
