Anishnawbe-Kwe from Shawanaga First Nation Julia has been beading for the last 10 years and found motivation in her mother’s passion for connecting with community and her sister’s design knowledge of the Anishnawbe style. Based in Sudbury, Ontario, she gets regular inspiration from traditional medicines, regalia colours and patterns, and nature. Recently, she has been working towards being an artist full-time, but in the meantime she is a Recreational Therapist in a 24-hour care setting, providing life enrichment programming to the residents. The name of her business was given to her by her mother Deb Taback, and it is a combination of “Nokomis” meaning Grandmother and “Nana” which is what Julia’s children call their grandmother. You can find more of her work, along with pieces from her sister Jennifer Taback and mother at www.nokonanamis.com
