Stephanie Sorbel an enrolled member of the Oglala Lakota Sioux Tribe of South Dakota, was born in Denver, Co and raised on the Pine Ridge Reservation.
She graduated high school in 1989 and then attended Black Hills State University. Then moved back to Kyle and finished her degree at Oglala Lakota College.
Currently, Stephanie has been working on a series of Native American story dolls inspired by her own Native heritage. This part of her culture has always attracted her and she portrays the dolls in Lakota tradition because of the bright colors and the traditional designs that decorate their costumes. She has returned back to OLC to receive her bachelor’s in Business and after graduation, Stephanie hopes to continue her love for the arts by teaching art and creating many more beautiful pieces. Stephanie does traditional Lakota art that is dying out with the new generations. Her goal is to preserve as much of my traditional ways as I can with the quill work.
