Painted Pony Bio
Vickie Ahlers received the name Painted Pony at her naming ceremony. She is an enrolled member of the Coharie Nation of North Carolina. Her great great grandfather was their first chief.
Vickie is a self taught bead work artist. She began beading as a young child. Taking inspiration from animals, reptiles, traditional stories, and American Indian wisdom quotes, she focuses on creating mostly one of a kind pieces using various beading techniques.
When not creating or doing chores, she enjoys spending time with her family, which also includes her dogs and horses. She also finds dancing at pow wows and putting on programs at schools, churches, or wherever invited, to educate people about her American Indian culture quite enjoyable.
