Grandma’s dress connects women to their culture | Subscriber

Several women with scissors in hand and fabric draped on tables in front of them gathered in the large meeting room of the Lac Courte Oreilles (LCO) administration building over the weekend of April 14-17.

There was no sewing machine in sight as the ladies weaved a needle and thread through the fabric. Nearby were three robes of the same design from three different eras: pre-contact in deerskin, a European contact version in red wool, and a modern version with large Ojibway floral designs in cotton velvet.
