On this edition of Culture Clique, we hear from Colette Hyman – a professor of history at Winona State University. Hyman will speak on six generations of the art of Dakota Women. Hyman discusses the quillwork, beadwork and painting Dakota women would do to everyday objects to embellish and beautify them. This decorating was known as “fancywork” and many Dakota descendants are continuing that work today.
