Pat's Story: Pat Bruderer – Halfmoon Woman represents the preservation of one of the rarest and most threatened ancient indigenous art forms in North America: Birch Bark Biting. She was born and raised in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada and is of Cree ancestry. She is the mother of five children and currently resides in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Halfmoon has always been an active community member, teaching art, volunteering, and creating programs to assist first-nations communities in Canada.

Halfmoon Woman is self-taught, inspired by the work of Angelique Merasty of Flin Flon, Manitoba. Halfmoon feels great responsibility as a carrier of this valuable art form, and strives for it's preservation, and for the teachings that it holds. Her artwork can be found in homes, museums, and galleries around the world!
