Lena White

Lena White, First Nation & Inuit Artisan, has been creating her artwork for 19 years. Lena was mentored by her Mother in Law, Annie Smith of the Kwanlin Dun First Nation, in Whitehorse, Yukon.  Lena says it's her passion for learning and studying First Nation and Inuit Art that drives her to continue.  Lena sews something every single day, and loves the thrill of a challenge.

This piece honours tradition.  It features a pattern that has been passed from generation to generation for centuries, and bead colours akin to those of early trade beads.
