Angela Andrew

Innu

Sheshatshiu, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

(1946- )


Angela Andrew was born at Tshiashkushit on the Churchill River, Labrador. She has been making Innu tea dolls for many years and is well known to people in the craft industry for the excellent quality of her dolls. Angela normally resides in Sheshatshiu, Labrador, but is currently studying education at Memorial University in St. John’s. She still finds time to make dolls despite her busy study schedule.

Angela designed these dolls herself based on the way her elders used to dress when she was growing up. “I used to see Innu women dressing like this whenever there were special ceremonies. But nobody wears the traditional clothing anymore. I decided to try making dolls as a way to encourage younger people to think about their culture, about who they are as Innu people, and so that they could be proud of themselves.”
