  • This rose design was handed down to Ronald by his Grandmother, and is therefore an important part of his heritage. Designs are created by drawing them actual size onto paper or card. The design is then punched with holes which can then be used as a template to mark it out on the vamp of the slipper for beading. These design cards cn be used for generations if looked after. 
  • Ronald's family migrated down to Little Salmon Lake in South Central Yukon from the Big Salmon River 150 years ago. They become part of the Little Salmon Carmacks First Nation. Ronald has been making slippers since the age of five, and inherited many of his designs from his grandmother.
  • The word moccasin originates from the Algonquin language. This word was used by settlers and has come to refer to any kind of indigenous slipper. Each First Nation have their own style of slipper that have been in constant creation for generations, generally handed down through one generation teaching the next.
