Listen and subscribe to our podcast:

Beading has long been a Métis tradition passed from generation to generation by mothers and grandmothers. Author and leading educator in Métis sewing traditions, Amy Briley, is featured in this episode of Paykiiwikay to share the history of beading right down to choosing the proper materials to use in different projects.

“When I had the opportunity learn beadwork, it kind of flowed out of me really naturally as if it’s always been inside of me, but I just needed to release it and have somebody show me how to do those steps.”
