English is my first language but Chata Anumpa is my father’s. As I begin to learn Choctaw at this point in my life I realize that as much as I can practice I will always have my own accent. I started to think about this distinction in my beadwork. Learning beadwork at the time that I did influenced the style in which I work. While I can attempt to recreate historic Choctaw beadwork I will always inject my own aesthetic into a piece. This bag is an embrace of this concept. The different stitches and overall appearance are Choctaw and southeastern tribes while the designs encapsulated within the piece are distinctly my own.
