Landis Bahe

Landis Bahe

Tattoo Artist ~ Landis Bahe (Navajo) was born on August 2, 1978 in Tuba City, Arizona. His maternal clan originates from Hard Rock, Arizona. It was while living in Las Vegas, Nevada that many of Bahe's award-winning paintings were created and inspired. Majority of his art has to do with the ethereal beauty, mysticality and spirituality of the Navajo culture. (from "Art of the People")

Wendell Sakiestewa

Wendell Sakiestewa

Wendell Sakiestewa grew up in Arizona, surrounded by the creative arts of his Hopi heritage. Wendell’s grandmother, a seamstress and pattern-maker, taught him to sew, introduced him to buying fabrics, showed him how to make and layout a pattern. She nurtured his talents, and entered him in every art contest she could and he won most of them!

Penny Singer

Penny Singer

The Penny Singer Collection is a line of unique handmade clothing and accessories that embraces the Native American Spirit and comes to market with clean lines, smart design, and a flavor all its own. My philosophy is that a garment should be the best that it can be, and I invest the time to ensure that the quality of every piece meets or exceeds the standards of the last. From handbags to ribbon shirts, my designs reflect who I am—free, unapologetic, and just plain “real.”
