Stunning beadwork, moosehide, wolf, muskrat, wolverine and beaver fur, combined with master skin sewing skills, lots of laughter, and sore fingers are yielding the following creations:

  • Yukon Style Women’s Muskrat Parka
  • Yukon Style Child Size Parka
  • Traditional Dress
  • Moose Skin Chiefs Coat
  • Moose Skin Vest
  • Large and small Beaver Skin Hat
  • Large and small Beaver gloves

Beginning June 1st, visitors to the Center will be able to dress their entire family in these beautiful creations and take home a family portrait on CD. $65 per family for a 15-minute portrait session.
