My Sewing Mentor

Here's a student produced interview with a Brevig Mission elder, Rita Olanna, that has taught me all about Eskimo skin sewing. I enjoy her sweet and joyful personality as we spend time together sewing and chatting. This video has some information about some aspects of traditional skin sewing.

Notice her last words, " . . . and come again". This is what people in Brevig always say in their farewells.
