"I am Bronson Velarde, Jicarila born and raised, I left the Rez to go to school I attained my masters degree and in the process I have worked full time as a municipal firefighter for the last 18 yrs.
My company Props & Glory is about giving thanks to the things and people that empower us. That idea of Props & Glory began post 9-11, I wanted to somehow give show my respect to my brothers in the fire service. I thought a t-shirt of my own design would be a nice gesture.
Since 2003 I have been working on acquiring the equipment, training, business license, trade mark, web address, needed and finally after several years Props & Glory was screen printing, from the art concept to the screening printing all is done in house by myself.
Props & Glory has focused on applying themes of empowerment first in the fire service and now towards a Native American theme with designs tired to my Jicarilla heritage.
In 2013 Props & Glory finally opened up its web strore at www.propsandglory.com there is still much experience to be gained in this craft but it is a labor of love. I truly hope that you will visit the web site and hope you like my effort to give Props & Glory to People. I am grateful for all the blessings of education and resources my tribe has given me and my family.
I will have some shirts for sale at the Lil Beaver Celebration and they can also be found at the Wild House Casino Gift Shop."
