" FOUR DIRECTIONS" MEDICINE BAG
JAKS Native Creations
By John Lopez
My name is John Lopez and I am a member of the Walker River Paiute Tribe from Schurz, NV. My wife and I have been married for the past 12 years and we have 2 children that bead as well. I have been beading and creating Native American pieces for the past 20 years but now fully committed to creating since November of 2016. I love teaching others how to bead and what it means to our people to continue this very important piece of our culture and tradition.
