Beading with the Big Chief
The Cabildo
February 12, 2020

Beading with the Big Chief showcases the work of students in our inaugural adult beading course taught by Big Chief Darryl Montana of the Yellow Pocahontas Hunters. Over the course of eight weeks, students explored the history, traditions, and techniques of Mardi Gras Indians and created their own hand-sewn beaded designs. Their creations will be displayed alongside pieces from Chief Montana’s past suits.
