I spent months beading it because I felt it was important to represent my culture. I saw a white buffalo a few years ago and it gave me hope for my generation so I wanted to include it. The hummingbird represents my name, Nanogaskwe. I’m starting law school at Marquette University Law School in August and hope to represent my people in the future.” Joshua Williams The knitted pumpkins feature a range of autumn colors created by Joshua Williams.
