  • Pat Bruderer was born in Churchill, Manitoba. She is Metis. Her mother belongs to the Peter Balantyne Band. Pat is the mother of five children. She lives on Mosakhiken Cree Nation reserve, Manitoba. Her interest in art began at an early age. Her mentor and teacher was her mother. She believes birch bark biting has many teachings: patience, respect, kindness, creativity, imagination and sharing. Pat has worked hard to keep this traditional art form alive.
  • Birch Bark biting is a traditional Cree art. It is done by carefully separating thin pieces of birch bark. When you get a piece of bark, you fold it two or more times. You place the bark between your teeth imagining what you are going to bite. You begin biting while rotating it with your hand. The end result is a design. Originally, they were used for beadwork of silk embroidery patterns.
