Meet Navajo Artist Connie Begay at Antelope Valley Indian Museum SHP
Meet artist Connie Begay at the Antelope Valley Indian Museum on Saturday, September 24, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. Connie is a proud member of the Diné “Navajo” tribe. She makes bead necklaces and earrings.
Connie began making jewelry and crafts for fundraising events and donation silent auctions, but now it is her full-time job. She sells at several Pow Wows and events during the year. In addition to the personal enjoyment she gets from making jewelry, she enjoys the smiles on her customers’ faces that let her know she has made them happy.
Connie’s heritage and her family are very important to her, particularly her parents, her three grown children, and her new baby granddaughter.
The Antelope Valley Indian Museum hosts an American Indian Celebration in October every year. This year the Celebration will be the third weekend, October 15th and 16th.
