Paula Bidwell, an American Indian artist, author and speaker, partners with Lea Gerlach in the Many Hoops project manyhoops.com, based on healing the relationship between the early settlers and the original inhabitants of the United States, the American Indians. The project begins with the U.S. national holiday called “Thanksgiving”--often a child's first introduction to multicultural interactions--addressing the stereotypes used in school books and offering many culturally appropriate alternatives for teachers, parents and other educators. Paula and her husband Brian O’Flanagan are both members of the Baha’i Faith and currently live in Athens, Georgia.
