Memories of Northeastern Ontario: Decorative Details

This decorative hanging on the right side of my Memories weaving has wooden beads, seed beads, partridge feathers, leather and wire-bound rock. It was a hand-crafted gift from a friend in Northeastern Ontario. She has an English and Anishinaabe heritage and remembers her life as the Grandmother of our ‘status’ Anishinaabe friend. I once had a vision of the latter as a ‘white woman’ in Victorian England. I saw her wearing a long, full dress of that time. Reincarnation puts a whole new slant on the subject of‘cultural appropriation’.
