Crafts of the Gwich’in people

Here’s a close look at a shoe — rather a moccasin — which was sold at the Great Northern Arts festival.

Many Gwich’in designs feature flowers and it’s impressive to imagine some long evenings, where the creator chooses, threads and sews every bead.

  1. One by one
    A million
    Little beads
    A white one
    and two blue
    and a green here
    and three silver in a star
    Tell of undying love
    For babies
    Gone

  2. With the word “gone” at the end, your poem suddenly turns very sad! 😦

    The babies grow up but the shoes remain, I suppose.
