Waniyetucokan Wi: Middle of Winter

November, 2011

Here, on the Northern Plains, the month of November is known as Waniyetucokan Wi in Lakota, which means Middle of Winter...but so far, Mother Nature has been good to us and kept the bitter cold, snowy days (that usually come with winter) at bay. This is a timely gift, as the hustle and bustle of the holiday season begins!

Craft Sale: 20% off Needles

A necessity for beadwork, leather craft, shawls, or for making almost any type of craft for that matter, good needles are cherished supplies in any craftworkers toolkit. In honor if the busy craft-making months ahead, we are celebrating with a sale on these precious tools - now, until the end of November, needles are 20% off!

American Indian Heritage Month
November is also National American Indian Heritage Month, a time to celebrate, remember, and honor the many contributions and rich ancestry of the Native American culture. Since we are surrounded by these wonderful reminders everyday here in the store, we decided to share our resources and have compiled a list of ideas for everyone to join in celebrating this special month...

Meet the cast of the Lakota Berenstain Bears

Learn Lakota with the Berenstain Bears
The Berenstain Bears have been teaching children important values and meaningful life lessons for nearly half a century...and now, this beloved family of bears have begun their quest to help revive the endangered Lakota language with a new series dubbed in this ancient language.

On Saturday, November 19, members of the Lakota Berenstain Bears Project will be making an appearance in our bookstore to celebrate the release of their Limited Edition DVD Set of Matho Waunsila Thiwahe and sign copies of this inspiring series!

Featuring vibrant colors, beautiful imagery, and whimsical designs, we recently introduced a line of Sticks Furniture to our Gallery...and by popular request, we are in the process of adding these unique, functional pieces to our website!

November 25 - 26, we will also have Sarah Grant (Creative Director of Sticks) in the store for a "Trunk Show". We're bringing a whole collection of gorgeous new items for this special event...and if you've been dreaming of that perfect, unique addition for your home, Sarah can also help you design your own custom piece.

Dried Sage Leaves for Smudging

Dried Sage Leaves

We are known for our bundles of dried sage with the long beautiful stems full of leaves, but once in awhile, as a special treat (for a limited time only), we bag just the leaves...no need to strip the stems or throw any part of your bundle away!


Leather & Pipestone
From brain tanned antelope and German tanned deer, to commercially tanned hides, and also pipestone, we have a new selection of craft supplies for your winter time craft projects.

Stay in touch!
