    Man lives dream tanning buffalo hides - By Steve Miller, AP, Aberdeen American News, SD
    Belitz continues to make buffalo hide tipis, buffalo robes and other things, mostly for museums and Indian 'hobbyists' but also for schools offering Native American studies and individual Indians. Belitz said there are many hobbyists in Europe enthralled with the Indian way of life. They dress in period clothing, learn Indian languages and meet in 'councils.'

    He also brain-tans deer hides to sell to Indians for beadwork. He provides tribes with items such as buffalo bladders, stomachs and tails.

    And some Indians come to him to learn the old traditional methods.

    He sees the irony in a white man teaching Indians their traditional crafts.
