When I was asked what I remember about the work women did in my life, instantly the image of grandma tanning hide came into my mind. She worked all the time, I use to love going to spend time with her at their camp at Wolf Creek and at Moosehide. My mother also worked very hard and lived a traditional life. I have learnt so much from both of them.
Title: Dancing with Beads
Materials: stroud, glass seed beads, felt
I made this design for my daughter Allison’s traditional regilea. This flower is a design created to give to my children to symbolize strength and foster leadership. We each have our own colour of beads that represent each one of us. When I made my daughters and grandchildren’s regalia I was naturally drawn to the colours of the beads for their designs. This flower motif is unique because I designed it and choose its colours for all of us to wear as one.
