Aodhàn Crawford - United Cherokee Aniyunwiya Nation and Scottish          https://www.craftycrawford.com/

Wampum weaver, hide painter and other traditional Pan-Indian art. 


I am enrolled in the United Cherokee Aniyunwiya Nation a small state recognized tribes of approx 1,500 people. My Family traces our heritage to the Hester roll, we also have more Native and Scottish relatives back in the 1700's. The Vann Family was caught in the middle of the Fur trade towards the end of the Powhatan Confederacy.   I have been making my native crafts since the age of 9. Obtaining rites slow and steady to do the work I do. I am Adopted Lakota and spend a lot of my time researching family history and ever curious I am always seeking traditional knowledge to share with others along the way. Culture is often complex, being multicultural is also deeply complex. I identify as Native and Gael to encompass all of my clans and leave those doors open to both of my cultures. The best we can do is navigate through the difficult waters and learn to sail our ships till calmer tides.  I am Cherokee and Powhatan, Clan Crawford, Clan Fraser and Clan Campbell by blood, yet was raised Lakota, I am adopted Lakota and my work reflects all of my ancestors. I am lucky to have had the teachers and community I have had. I started this business when I was 18 years old, some things have changed, other things have not.
