Chapan is a Cree word that means your great-grandparents and also means your descendants. My chapan was a midwife and healer who further supported her family with trapline of rabbit snares. Trapline is a series of rabbit fur drums in pastel colours to honour her work as a provider. My quilt and elk-hide drums reference Star blanket quilts that are created and gifted to honour people and significant events in their life. I am inspired by the many Indigenous women who continue to adapt, create and remain the backbone of our families and communities.
