The birch tree was of great importance to Anishnaabe (Ojibway) people due to its tough, flexible, highly waterproof sheets of bark. Birchbark has been traditionally used for everything from papering the exteriors of canoes and houses to making baskets, artwork, and maps. In some Anishnaabe (Ojibway) communities, birchbark is a sacred gift from the Creator.
Each birch piece is made with bark hand harvested by Sister Bear Kathleen, in her traditional territory of Neezaatiikaang First Nation in Northwestern Ontario.
