Maynard White Owl Lavadour

Maynard White Owl Lavadour learned how to do traditional American Indian beadwork from his grandmother as he grew up on the Umatilla Reservation. Now he’s a professional. Thousands of beads and weeks of work go into a single piece, whether it’s a bag, a cradle board, or medallions to go on a necklace.
