(1955- )

Isabel was born in Old Masset, Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands in British Columbia), into the Raven moiety Yahgu’7laanaas. Her Haida name, S’it kwuns, means Red Moon, which was a name held by her maternal great-grandmother Isabella Edenshaw. She comes from a long line of weavers, including her mother, Primrose Adams; her aunt Delores Churchill, and cousins April and Holly Churchill. She began to weave seriously in 1982.
