Inspired by Creator, Made for You

Laughing Bear Ventures Home Page

From beginnings in middle class America, to a spiritual relationship with ancestors and Spirit, Laughing Bear Ventures is the ambitious attempt of two people to share what they have learned.

Laughing Bear Ventures is Mark Laughing Bear (Shashdlohi) and Annette Mama Bear (Ama Shash). The journey of discovery was mine. I'm the Laughing Bear. Ama came along for the ride and found it drew her in as well. As we have grown, we have seen some wondrous things. We have also learned that it is possible for a 50-something techno-geek to have a creative side, and for a 40-something Jersey girl to find her place on the Red Road, too.

What we have learned has impacted who we have become. Who we have become requires that we share. So here we are.

The links you see on the left take you to those portions of the web site where Shashdlohi and Ama Shash display what they've learned, what they've created and what they wish to share with you. Please explore!

Mission Statement

Laughing Bear Ventures, as an extension of Shashdlohi and Ama Shash, must share what they have become. To that end, knowledge and skills must be shared. In the sharing of skills, by way of selling creative products, the benefits therefrom must be shared with those needing assistance.
