Workshop: Mukluks with Gloria Beckman

About the Artist

Gloria Beckman has been an instructor for many years, teaching moccasin and mukluk workshops for schools, in communities, and for the Manitobah Story Boot School. Spending many years working within Aboriginal language education within the province of Manitoba, Gloria believes in the importance of incorporating various components of cultures and traditions in language learning. Reflecting on the past few years teaching mukluks and moccasins, she says, “It has been uplifting to see the pride in the students’ eyes while working on their beaded pahkīkinaskisina/leather footwear. Students learning to make mukluks and moccasins connect with their cultural identity, stitch by stitch and bead by bead. Beading is a form of meditation that gives students a feeling of self-pride and accomplishment through their creations. An empowered human only wants the best for all humanity. The stories I have heard from people I’ve met through teaching have given me hope for a better future as more walk away with an ancestral skill.”
