Marie Pokue, Natuashish, Labrador: Fibre

Venue Section:

As an Innu woman from Natuashish, Labrador, I still practice the culture in the bush with my family. For 40 years I have been sewing and was taught by my late mother, Janet Poker, to make slippers, moccasins, gloves, mittens, and traditional clothing.  I clean, smoke and tan the caribou hide I use to make my products.
