Native Winds Gift Gallery & Craft Supply in Kaimuki will host an artists’ reception from 1 to 4 p.m. Dec. 1 for Jerry and Jim Yellowhawk, a father and son from the Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota.

Both men will show, sell and sign their works, which include an illustrated children’s book by son Jim and traditional Lakota (Sioux) bead work by father Jerry. The public is welcome at the reception, located in the shop on the second floor at 1152 Koko Head Ave.

Jim Yellowhawk has illustrated Frank Aaron (Bull Tail) Scout’s book, Grandfather’s Bedtime Stories, a collection passed down to Scout by his grandfathers when he was a young boy in Porcupine, S.D.

Jerry Yellowhawk, who also is here with his wife Johanna to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, will speak of the Lakota culture and how it is portrayed in their art. A respected Lakota elder, he also is a traditional dancer, translator and retired minister.

For more information, call 734-8018.
