Native Ways of Life

Remembering the smell of tanned seal when my grandmother would stitch a smoked moose hide moccasin. That great memory is where the basis of my business started.
My first pattern that I made was an evening purse. I made a few purses to go along with selling seal skins to the native elders. Much to my surprise, people liked the quality and uniqueness of my work. Which spurred me on to make a few more unique patterns. 10 different items later a lady stepped up to my table while at a craft fair and asked, "do you make mittens?" I said, "no". "Can you make me a pair?" "I can try". 2 weeks later, she was wearing a specialized, difficult to make, pair of unique mittens while watching the Iditarod mushers cross the finish line in Nome, Alaska. It's these people, my customers, that make the difference in my life.
This is one of the most rare opportunities left in the U.S. I get the privilege to work with our ancestral animals and I'm able to share such a rare gift with you....my future buyers.
