A Tribute to Don E. Stevens

Special Event

The Red Road: A Native American Path of Oneness

In the summer of 2020, The Beads on One String Foundation met TJ Ravenwolff, an Athabaskan and Muscogee Creek Native American from Alaska. He serves as the Intercessor for the Alaska Medicine Song Sundance, a sacred Native tradition, and is a culture bearer and intercessor in the Lakota Tradition. The Beads Foundation was able to give TJ a grant which allowed him to attend and help lead the sacred Sundance ceremony on the Lakota tribal land in South Dakota that summer.
