George, Deanna B.

Deanna B. George is a Tsleil-Waututh Nation Elder who has been weaving since 2009. Deanna started off doing baby blankets for her Nation's annual Baby Celebration; along with speaker blankets used for ceremonies.

From this beginning Deanna has expanded her craft into robes used as gifts, or to barter and as commissioned pieces.

One in particular would be the robe for BCIT. Deanna is happy to note that BCIT is implementing culture and setting the tone for incoming and outgoing presidents of BCIT by blanketing them with the BCIT robe.
