Lakota Visions - Mitchell Charles Zephier
Cétan Ho Wasté (Pretty Voice Hawk)

Mitchell Zephier of Rapid City, South Dakota grew up on the Cheyenne River and Rosebud Indian reservations. In 1981 he founded Lakota Visions Traditional Native American Arts, Crafts and Jewelry. He collaborates with fellow Lakota artists and has mentored over 34 apprentices in the arts of metal-smithing and marketing.

Authentic Native American Four Colors Medicine Wheel Shield and Overlay Eagles Bracelet by Lakota Mitchell Zephier Mitchell has won numerous awards including first place at Red Earth Show, several awards at the internationally prestigious Sante Fe Indian Market as well as presented his work at far off Native American venues like Schimutzun Celebration in Connecticut. He has also earned the South Dakota Governor's award.

Mitch has other forms of artistic expression. His album Cherish the Children won a National Native Music Award for Best Children's Album. Mitchell Zephier's latest venture is to team up with fellow artists to explore, on film this time, the issues that affect the lives of Native Young People in Cloud Horse Production's Lakota 4 Life, a Zephier inspired look at the issues, decisions, responsibilities and opportunities facing Native Youth today.

Michell's wife is Roxanne Apple Rosebud. Other family members and friends that work on the jewelry include his son Wakinyan Luta Zephier, Belle Starboy, Webster Two Hawk Jr., and Roger Dale Herron.


THE FOUR DIRECTONS AND FOUR SACRED COLORS - Many Native Americans view the world as having four directions. Each direction has a special meaning and color associated with it. The Lakota use the colors black, red, yellow and white to represent the four directions. For some, the colors represent the four seasons and the changes we make on our journey through life. Every tribe and every person has their own beliefs and you should use what best represents what you believe. Read more about Lakota Sioux and Four Colors Medicine Wheel.


What is Overlay?

With silver overlay, there are two layers of silver - the top layer is a scene, figures, or symbols meticulously cut out and then placed over a solid silver bottom layer.

The bottom layer is the background behind the cutouts and is traditionally darkened (oxidized) for contrast. Navajo silversmiths typically leave the background smooth while Hopi usually etch the background with hashmarks.

The two layers are “sweated” together - the silver is heated until the two layers meld. The result is a 3-D picture with great depth and interest.
