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!

Pat Bruderer Birch Bark Biting "Dragonfly's Meet"

Dragon flies are the symbol of the west coast Anglican diocese of islands and inlets. I bought this as a gift. This is just as thoughtful, intricate, and delicate as "Bee full of Life"and an earlier one of hers discovered at the museum shop in Calgary about 15 years ago. My grandfather had shown me birch bark biting on a small small basket with porcupine quill decoration about 50 years ago by another artist in Ontario. I thought the skill had been lost. I'm so happy to support Pat and hope she trains others, as this unique art form continues to wow us.
