Collection: Carolyn Bernard Young

    Carolyn is a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and a Mississippi Choctaw. She is a registered Choctaw artist and granddaughter of two original enrollees. 

    "My Native American heritage is rich with stories of suffering and triumph - the foundation of who we are today. Our sense of identity may be lost forever if we don't preserve and pass them on."

    A potter for more than 25 years, Carolyn creates ceramic art, jewelry and paintings that speak to the heart of the stories and the souls of her ancestors.
