Truly too blessed to stress.🙏This regalia, I danced fancy in, for a solid 6 years, lottttts of amazing, energy put into it. Lots of connections to the earth with my moccasins... It was made by my momma for my second to oldest sister, Percy. She danced in it for a few years, and then it was passed down to my sister, Boo. After that, it was passed down to me, and now it goes to my little one, Malēa. It's even more special, because I remade her leggings, yolk, and shawl... So it'll always have a part of her mommy's handwork in it. Raising my baby girl with traditional values and actively living in her culture as a child is the least I can give to her, for all that she means to me in this world... My mom doing so ever since I was 4 shaped me into who I am, so I will always stay close to our culture... Spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically.
