Traditional Lakota women's Regalia is an exquisite, intricate process.  As Beverly has said, the beading is more an inspirational journey than it is simply an art form.  Her traditional regalia for dance takes anywhere from a year and a half to three years to bead.  And that process is never finished.   The dresses below continue to receive new beaded inspiration from year to year.
