Symbology, Artwork and Creation in the Lakota Tradition
Utilizing specific numbers and color concepts, we will see how symbology is manifested in the artwork of the plains. Steve Tamayo will also explain how the manifestation of creation is intertwined into Lakota gender and seasonal specific games.
Steve Tamayo learned the traditional arts under Howard Wolf. Currently, he leads study and service groups on the Reservation and travels to museums and colleges throughout the country, including the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the Native American where his most recent work is centered on traditional Native games and toys at the Smithsonian.
