I am a Mi’kmaq woman and mother of three sons. I love exploring the outdoors with my dogs and am a horse and dog trainer. I learned many native craft skills from my father, mother, grandparents, and extended family and friends. I have continued this tradition by teaching my sons many arts and crafts.
I first learned to make moccasins as a teenager and made them for my sons when they were newborns. Baby moccasins are a precious keepsake of their blessed birth…a memory of how small our little ones were when they entered this world. We cherish these blessed feet as they will follow us through life.
I also make these baby moccasins in memory of the little ones taken from their families and sent to residential schools. We honour the ones lost and cherish the ones we have now. I believe that baby moccasins should be available for all Indigenous babies and am working on a plan to make this dream come true.
