KNOWLEDGE KEEPER & TRADITIONAL BIRCH BARK BITING ARTIST
My name is Halfmoon Woman.
I was born and raised in Churchill, Manitoba in the 1950’s. My maternal roots are from Southend Reindeer Lake and Pukatawagan, Manitoba. My mothers resilience has impacted me deeply and her spirit is woven into everything I create. I am a member of the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation (PBCN). We are Assin’skowitiniwak (Rocky Cree).
I've always produced art to nourish and heal my spirit. While some art is made from the hand, this art is made with my teeth. Birch bark bitings are an imprint. Illumination and shadow, teeth and bark. A kaleidoscope of impressions from my life.
