Beading

Teagyn Vallevand, tlingit name Aatagwéix’i, is an emerging artist from Kwanlin Dün First Nations, and belongs to the Ganaxteidi Raven Clan. Teagyn learned how to bead from Florence Moses and the KDCC Sewing Circle. As a young person, Teagyn has found fulfillment through beading in many ways; as a means to express herself, a form of meditation, and a way to reclaim and stay connected to her culture no matter where she is. She is very excited to again be participating in this year’s Adaka Festival!
