Herb Buffalo Dancer Shepherd,a Dancer and Dear friend of ours, has been combating Terminal Cancer and having Chemo Therapy for many years. Herb has danced at most Pow Wow throughout Florida for many many years. He is dedicated to his Dance as every Native should be, a True Warrior. We have witnessed him dancing at pow wow, and even being Head Man Dancer, directly following his Chemo Therapy for the week.
Those close to him do not want him riding his motorcycle anymore, he is looking to get a Conversion Van. I am running a coupon special in the shop through October 31, 2012. Any purchase made in Six Directions Traders shop ( www.sixdirectionstraders.artfire.com) using the Coupon code:
