Tashina Schlup

Artist Bio

Tashina Houle-Schlup is a 25-year-old Anishinaabe woman with ancestral ties to Ebb & Flow FN, Manitoba. Tashina has been deeply immersed in Indigenous art forms throughout her life, with a special focus on the exquisite art of quillwork. Under the name "Quillwork by Tashina," she runs her own small business, where she skillfully crafts modern pieces like earrings alongside traditional creations such as moccasins, bags, and knife cases.

What captivates Tashina about quillwork is its profound connection to the land, as it relies solely on natural materials. This ancestral craft has been cherished and passed down through generations long before the arrival of European influence.

In 2021, Tashina successfully completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in English and History from Brandon University, further enriching her knowledge and understanding of cultural heritage. Currently, she holds the esteemed position of Head of Indigenous Programming & Engagement at the Manitoba Museum, where she continues to promote and share the rich cultural heritage of Indigenous communities.
