      Designer :  Nikki Shawana is a mother, wife, business woman, teacher, friend and loves to travel North America to dance and sing at Pow Wows. When it comes to making art, she follows in the footsteps of her grandparents who were talented craftspeople. Nikki enjoys making moccasins, mittens, beadwork, sweetgrass baskets and Star Quilts.

      Design :  The Bear, or Mkwa in the Ojibwe language, is symbol of courage and balance. Nikki was drawn to include Bears in this design to show the reciprocal relationship to Mother Earth and to the animals. The Stars show our connection to the universe.

      The domes are the Haudenosaunee design that represents the Skyworld.  

      The florals using Anishinaabe woodland designs, remind us of the beauty of nature.

      The berries to honour the bears. The trees and forest are the original place of healing and wellness; in the forest we find our medicines, solitude, peace and balance.
