New beginnings surround us...and we look within and to our teachings to hear the voices of inspiration that will guide us forward. Together, we are FACING EAST as we gaze upon what is next.
Artist Statement: "Our sun rises in the east. The Facing East blanket acknowledges ways that Lakota, and other Indigenous people, honor, and express gratitude for the gift of each new day. Embedded within this act of gratitude is a deep respect for, and appreciation of the many cycles and relationships that support life." ~ Dyani White Hawk
