Karen is familiar with Native culture as some of us cannot be. She feels privileged to meet children and young adults to show them how they can incorporate their history into this art form. This year she met a Dakota Sioux Native college student, Mat, who quickly picked up on paper crafting. He's a natural! She taught him and other students how to create a scrapbook with a Native theme. Mat's reaction is exactly what she hoped and prayed for, that there could be a forerunner in the native community, a paper artisan, who would develop his skill and make this art form his own.

I'd love to collect enough funds to be able to place an online order to either Simon Says Stamp or Joanns and have the items shipped directly to Mat.
