Rosella Carney: Birch Bark Biting

The videos below are part of an interview conducted with an Aboriginal woman named Rosella Carney talking about the art
of birch bark biting. Rosella Carney is from Molanosa, Saskatchewan, just North of Montreal Lake. She is one of a handful of people that still do birch-bark biting. She was taught by a cultural resource teacher and now shares the art with others.
She also does moose-hair tufting and teaches the Cree language. Rosella currently resides in La Ronge, Saskatchewan.
