Sanders Weistche

Born in Nooskan, at the mouth of Broadback river out on Rupert Bay, Sanders Weistche grew up to excel in the art of snowshoe making. At age 14, he began to try, to learn because he saw the challenge to create something unique, and the opportunity as there was a lot of demand. He saw many needed snowshoes to go hunting and trapping. With help and drawing inspiration from his elder brother Johnny, he excelled in this tradition long before he married.

Today, at 69 years of age, he has learned that to create a good pair of snowshoes, you need to use the right type of wood, and also a little help from someone in shaping the snowshoe. Sanders still practices this tradition during the evenings, and he dreams that someday there will be a center for youth so that elders like himself can teach young people how to make snowshoes, to ensure that this tradition is not lost, and to encourage people to use these tools, because Sanders believes it’s where we came from.

Art Tradition Award: Individual

This award is presented to the individual male that through their work, they have demonstrated their dedication and commitment to preserve traditional art in Eeyou Istchee.

    Yo por lo general uso el calcetín del color del pantalón y no el del zapato. Si usara calcetines marrones con zapatos marrones, buscaría que tuviesen algún tipo de dibujo como la pata de gallo. Creo que en determinadas ocasiones, aunque sea romper las normas se puede usar un calcetín con una tonalidad más clara que la del zapato y la del pantalón. Por ejemplo en el libro de Hackett aparece unos calcetines color crema con unos pantalones de espiga gris con zapatos de ante marron oscuro.

    I’m a substantial buff of The 90s Are All That on TeenNick. In all honesty though, I’m starting to become uninterested in today’s lineup of programs that they’re recently showing. Ideally they’ll start out rotating a new group of television shows to the 2 hour block of shows. Assuming they never achieve this, then sadly, Nickelodeon are going to lose tv audiences.

    My second day at my new job was extremely unpleasant as the person who was training me at one point yelled at me from across the store, embarrassing me in front of customers. I let her know that I was upset and that I didn’t appreciate how she treated me. She apologized, but she seems to have issues with switching between personalities, as though she feels stressed being in a position of a trainer. It has made me physically ill because I do not know how to handle the emotional toll.

    Cheryl, this may sound trite, all but when you write about your ordeal, it helps with putting it in perspective, with naming the fears, frustrations, and repurcussions of the meds and more. Keep on writing about it, in blogs, in a journal, creatively and otherwise, etc. Know that you are brave, to go about your business, to achieve every time you drive, for instance, despite the dystonia. Write about it. See a movement disorders doctor, and write about it here afterwards. We all will be listening. Welcome to the community of people trying to deal with dystonia. You’re not alone!

    . The problem arises of how we incorporate 'gay' characters into our books. If we put them in then we may be accused of 'tokenism' especially if there is no gay theme to the story. I considered including a 'gay' theme to a recent story but backed off because 1. I hadn't personal experience and 2.I was afraid i would get it wrong and be accused of box ticking.In the end I think these barriers will be broken by gay writers.

    Hey Mark,I am glad that you found it valuable to you. Yes, that one little blurb from 2009 certainly got more than its fair share of attention. It is terrible that people take vague references and twist them to suit their own needs, especially when it hurts people in the process. Many people would benefit greatly from switching from tobacco to e-cigs (if not quitting outright). I am sure that you will be much happier with the smokeless alternative.
