like working with cedar bark and spruce root.
When a project is finished, I feel very proud.
I used to help my mother harvest roots and bark,
but only became interested in weaving in 1994
when my sister Ginny (Virginia) Hunter offered
to teach me. I left it for a couple of years, but started weaving
again in 1996.

very time consuming.”
