Gorgeous Beadwork Sends Powerful Message in this PSA

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown December 28th, 2015 Last Updated on: December 28th, 2015

Bent Image Lab worked carefully to create this beautiful public service announcement for the American Indian College Fund.

“American Indians are the most under-served group in the United States when it comes to education. Using traditional Indian beads as metaphor, a single yellow bead leads hundreds then thousands of other beads to take action, build momentum and together create exquisite images from Native American folk art. Inspired by the contemporary art of Marcus Amerman, with music by Neil Young.”

See if you can guess who the narrator is at the end of the PSA!
