For fifteen years, I worked for and with the California Indian Council. I traveled every three months on my vacation time to reservations throughout California, Arizona, Utah and New Mexico. I was involved in collecting clothing ,food, medical equipment and supplies for reservations that were remote and didn't receive govenment programs. I also raised money for heating stoves and made sure everyone had warm coats and blankets. I supplied the food bank programs at the reservations, and also supplied water drums for families where wells were miles away. I worked with my teacher, Black Bear, in helping the urban people with their needs as well. There were many pow-wows, charity events and projects to help with.
Since 1991, I have been making traditional and contemporary artwork. I make full leather hand-made ragalia, such as leggins ,vests, and coats. Also mandallas, dreamcatchers, tobacco bags, medicine bags ,turtle bags,spears and custom Pendelton coats. I have shown my work in the Santa Fe gallery, Challenger Hall and many private storesas well as on the road. I have included a few pictures of my artwork in my portfolio as follows:
