Recovery Artist: Shawn Brigman PHd

I first met Shawn Brigman PHd in July 2017 to construct his Tule mat lodge at UBCO to showcase Salishan architecture and to have a place to dream in. I did just that and collaborated with him and David Bernie on the canoe series featured in my profile photo. It is through his work I have been able to continue mine. I am thankful there is an authentic Interior Salishan tribal member creating contemporary implements for artists and community to learn and grow from. For the people, by the people

Here are some of the public places I have found to be useful in identifying quality control and high end implements for Performance and general use:
