Travel Trinkets: Sioux Pottery

Another road trip... another piece of Native American pottery.

Our trip in 2005 took us through the Great Plains.  At a Lakota (Sioux) pottery shop I found this small pot that ended up having a large lesson to teach me.  It is one of my treasures.

The artists in the shop use local red clay from the Badlands area.  How they decorate is their own interpretation of the traditional ways.
