Tagish Kwann Elder Edith Baker has been beading for the past 40 years. Taught by her mother Annie Smith, Edith grew up in the mountains without television and watched her mother bead and sew. Edith enjoys supporting her community by purchasing other artists’ work and incorporating them into her own work. The teaching of sharing and community remains a strong part of Edith’s way of life.
