She has won awards and honors at Indian Market, the Heard Museum and, in 2003, she received the Dobkin Fellow at the School of American Research.  In 2009 she was featured in the PBS television series, Craft in America and in 2016 she was selected as the USA Distinguished Fellow in Traditional Arts.  Her work has been exhibited in Changing Hands 2 at the Museum of Art and Design; at the Brooklyn Art Museum’s Tipi: Heritage of the Great Plains; in State of the Artat the Crystal Bridges Museum; and recently in Native Fashion Nowat the Peabody Essex Museum. Greeves' work is also included in the collections of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, the British Museum, the Heard Museum, the Brooklyn Art Museum, the Museum of Arts and Design and the Portland Art Museum among others.
