As some of you may know, I have a great respect, admiration and affection for the Native American people and their culture. My grandmother told me many, many years ago that I was part Native American. As we all are aware, grandmothers DO NOT lie!! Whether she was lying or not, I've always felt an inexplicable connection to Native American culture. I have always thought of myself as part Native American and living in the southwest gives me a great opportunity to visit many pueblos and experience first hand the culture of these people. Native Americans are very talented in many facets of creating art - pottery being one of my favorite forms. I am fortunate to have collected many pots from local Pueblos here in New Mexico.
I've had a pony tail for 5 years or so and recently, at the suggestion of my wife, started wearing it braided.
