MCG was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Annie Paul of Indian Brook (Sipkne’katik Band).
Last winter, Annie was kind enough to open her home to us and share her talent for creating wooden flowers out of wisqoq (black ash).
When we asked Annie if she had any flowers that we could photograph she smiled and said , ‘I’m so sorry dear, but I’ve given them all away.”
She pointed to a photo on the wall of the Pope receiving a bouquet of her flowers and asked that we photograph that instead.
We will remember her as a humble and generous lady.
We were honoured to have spent time with her.
