Juanita Growing Thunder Fogarty (Fort Peck Assiniboine/Sioux) is a second-generation traditional Northern Plains beadwork and embroidery artist.
As SAR’s 2022 Eric and Barbara Native American Artist Fellow, she has been working on a project that entailed the creation of two traditional Assiniboine (Nakoda) women’s dresses: one is a classic Assiniboine women’s trade wool dress with pony beadwork and brain tan buckskin accents and adorned fringe; the second dress is an Assiniboine style silk ribbon dress complete with brain tan buckskin accents and adorned with an assortment of brass items, bells and coins.
Join us as Growing Thunder Fogarty talks about her work and time as the 2022 Eric and Barbara Dobkin Native Artist Fellow.
