Taught by Jona Sparvier:

I am a Sioux/Assiniboine from Whitebear First Nation. I am a mother of three girls and the founder of T & T Dreamcatchers, established in 2016. My journey began while healing from the loss of my father: Within the process of creating a web I found peace. I’ve been continuously creating ever since. My inspiration stems from daily life, finding beauty in various things and integrating that into my work. the dreamcatcher is rooted into my history as an Indigenous person. I love sharing the beauty of our culture. That is where our healing must begin and I feel this is one of the ways to contribute.
