Healing Through Art

     Let’s continue our journey of healing together through this beading project as we remember our MMIWG/MMIP. Simply send us your name and address and we will be happy to send you the beads and findings to complete this project by clicking on the following link: Your information will not be shared with anyone or used for anything other than to send you the beads and findings to make these earrings. 

     This is a great project for all, whether you are just beginning your beading journey or you are an expert! Raylene Wolf, Lac Courte Oreilles tribal member, noted that this pattern took her just 20 minutes to assemble. You can add your own twist to the pattern and make it your very own. The instructions for the simple loop earrings are located on the following page and have been provided, with permission, by the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, Cultural Arts and Education. The Choctaw Nation has also provided a step-by-step instructional video on YouTube located at:


     We would love to hear from you and see the work that you do. It is our hope to put together a selfie-collage of everyone who participates in this project (or a picture of your finished product) and post it to the AI/AN Society of Indian Psychologists website. If you would like to have your art displayed, please send it to
