About

This website is about family, heritage, and the legacy of Native American silversmiths. 
I'm Mechel - that's me in the middle picture circa 1978; my daughters and grand and great-grands surround me. The place is Manuelito, NM, or Kin Hozhoni, where my mother's family is from and where I lived as a child.  All of the jewelry was made by my family, past, and present. 

My brothers, Gary, Ira, and I are from the Todich'ii'nii (Bitter Water) clan, born for the Naaneesht'ezhi Tachii'nii (The Charcoal Streaked Division of the Red Running Into the Water) clan. 

We treasure our legacy of silversmithing passed down from generations. 

This site showcases talent, originality, and artistry. You'll find original works created by my brothers, Gary and Ira, and nephews, Wyatt, Kyle, and Trent, on this website. 

Welcome to Indigenous Ideas.

Blessings,

Mechel
