n'wìndamàge / my story
My name is Emily and I am an artist from the Algonquins of Pikwàkanagàn First Nation, and I am of Anishinaabe and French descent.
My brand is called Eagle Woman Arts after my traditional name. Beading has been such a strong part of my healing journey. I love to spend my time creating colourful unique pieces, and sharing my craft with community.
I have facilitated leather mitten making, as well as beading workshops with a number of organizations, private businesses, and individuals. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in mitten or beading workshops.
I want to utilize this platform to share my own work and intiatives, and to empower my community.
In an effort to reconnect with my traditional language, I have chosen to use Algonquin words to name the pieces in my collections. In this way, I am taking it slow to try and understand the words of my ancestors.
I have studied at Toronto School of Art and Centennial College in their Fine Arts Diploma Program, and the Community Worker Program at George Brown College. My real education came from finding myself through reclaiming my identity and learning about what it means to be Anishinaabe Kwe.
