Kendorina first learned how to bead from her mother, who was self-taught.
“Powwows were my first inspiration, making powwow outfits and creating art that I’m able to dance with, then I moved to every day fashion. I wanted to wear my beadwork wherever, whenever. I hope that my art inspires our younger generation to see what they’re capable of. I want them to see the passion and ideas in my pieces and understand the stories behind them.”
