About the Art Form: A birch bark biting is a unique piece of Indigenous artwork. They are madefrom biting an image, using only the teeth, into a thin, single layer of birch bark harvested from the birch tree. Birch bark had many uses historically, from making canoes and cooking pots, to important medicinal uses. Birch bark bitings were used as a means to create beadwork patterns on clothing and moccasins, to share stories, and record ceremonies.
