Indigenous Beading with Angela Bear Chief


Angela Bear Chief will lead participants through the process of beading in the creation of their very own piece of art. A variety of options on what to create will be provided, from dangly earrings to pins. All supplies included. 

Angela Bear Chief – member of Siksika Nation, recent graduate of St. Mary’s University with a BA-General Studies, wife, mother of 4, grandmother of 6. I have been creating beaded pieces for 8 years, and I am self-taught. While attending University, along with the Director of Indigenous Initiatives, I have co-created monthly workshops on campus for staff and students called Beading, Bannock and Banter. These workshops were in person in 2019 and into 2020, as we all know Covid hit, and the workshops were on hold. In the fall of 2021, these workshops resumed, and the final workshop ended January 2022. I will be attending in the fall, the After-degree Education-Elementary in 2022-2024.  I also have a small business for Indigenous patrons looking to have regalia made for their children, I also create Ribbon Skirts, all in my free time.

One class | $35 +GST | All supplies included | Ages 15+
