Last night's beading class with Ben Geboe (Yankton Sioux) was a blast. Ben taught those in attendance how to bead a necklace and a keychain in the way he was taught. It was a success because there are now talks to have a monthly beading class. Keep your eyes tuned here for more information on the next beading night.
In addition to learning how to bead, the night turned into a talking circle as everyone got to speak their mind on all sorts of issues ie, Land O Lakes Butter!
The NorthEast Two-Spirit Society wants to thank it's valuable member Ben Geboe for his service to the Native community. A-Ho!
