Adornment Wins at Heard Indian Market - Part II

And finally, here is my follow-up post on some of the award winning clothing and accessories at the
54th Annual Heard Indian Fair & Market that was held this past weekend in Phoenix.

Some newer names showed up on the list of winners, joining the ever-awesome D.Y. Begay, Dyanni Hamilton-Youngbird, Dallin Maybee, and Jamie Okuma, who were all awarded ribbons (as you'll see below).

To the left is a dress titled, 'Dentalium Shell Medicine Dress,' made by Catherine Blackhorse (Seminole), which won a Blue Ribbon in its division, but it also took home the Best of Class award for Classification VI: Textiles, Weavings, Clothing.

All of the photos in this post were taken by me during the Friday night Best of Show reception.
