A Diversity of Styles

Individual Expression

“I like sewing any kind of things, especially mitts and slippers made with moosehide. I like sewing for a pastime, I don't like doing nothing. I want my daughter to learn how to sew, but I didn't teach her yet, because she has to go to school every day. But I'm going to show her whenever I get a chance, when school's over.” Joan Elise Tsetso, Fort Simpson, Northwest Territories, 1980

“I get my [ideas for] decoration from the bush, just by looking at all the wild flowers, on my nature walks in the summer, just going berry picking and walking with my parents on our summer travels. If one really looks, there are a lot of pretty flowers.”
Rose Cli Tsetso, Fort Simpson, Northwest Territories, 1993.
