My name is Coralie Nepoose, daughter of Charity and Levi Nepoose. I am Plains Cree and I come from the Samson Cree Nation. I’m a mother of 2 daughters. I’m also a fancy dancer, and I have been since I was 11 years old. I bead all my own beadwork as well as my daughters. Beading is something I’ve always been good at, and it was an honour to be asked to be a part of something so big.
Coralie has done all the beadwork for the Men's Grass Dance regalia in Powwow! Ohcîwin The Origins. Have a peek at some of her work below.
Ohcîwin is a Cree word meaning “The Origin” or telling of a story where something originated.
Powwow! Ohcîwin The Origins features 7 powwow dance styles, with full Regalia and craft work. Curators and creators, Patrick Mitsuing and Marrisa Mitsuing, have gathered the stories, worked with the Artisans, and carefully built the Regalia for this exhibition.
This exhibition is on display at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery (MAG) until February 27, 2021. Book your visit today!
