About the Harvesters Design
"When creating a design for MINI TIPI, I felt it would not be genuine to simply adhere to frequently used styles of geometric designs. This is why I chose to include the subject of wild rice harvesting from my own culture as an Anishnaabe. Anishnaabe quilt work was also a source of inspiration for the geometric patterns featured in my design."
In September, during the harvest moon, the Ojibwe peoples begin the rice harvest. The harvest is done in pairs using poles to hit the rice stalks, knocking the grains into the canoe. Rice is an important historic food source for the Ojibwe people, feeding their families over the winter months.
