Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory
My name is Jess Trudeau and I am an Ojibwe artist from Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory. Currently, I reside in Algonquin territory while completing my undergraduate degree in Psychology.
I started beading with teachings from members of the First Nations and Métis communities I worked within. Picking up beads during conferences and gatherings kept our hands busy and ears attentive! I enjoy working with various styles and am always looking to try something new. I appreciate the teachings within the craft of beauty, strength, and imperfection.
