Art Collection, Kanata endeavors to capture both the traditional and contemporary designs of our artists with licensing programs that give back to the artist, the organization and the community. An ideal way to celebrate any trip to the North West is an item that is unique to this region and carries much significance in the native community. The woven designs of Debra Sparrow integrate the rich history and culture of the Coast Salish people.
Debra was commissioned to design this authentic Salish wolf blanket by the Tsleil-Waututh Nation (Slay-Wah-Tooth). The Tsleil-Waututh people come from the Wolf Clan, and the wolf symbol is a celebration of family, unity and strength.
The Sparrow Sisters have been continually inspired by their ancestors’ strength, creativity and intelligence, and Debra and Robyn Sparrow have been creating Salish weavings for over 20 years. Debra is a self-taught Musqueam designer who was born and raised on the Musqueam Indian Reserve, she integrates her peoples’ history into her art and design work. It is Debra’s hope to educate others about the beauty and integrity of her people’s history through her art.
