I believe that the right to the use of certain patterns was passed on through families, and I believe that I am entitled to weave the Dragonfly pattern because all the hats that I have seen in museums across North America that were created by my great-grandmother were woven in variations of this particular pattern. This leads me to believe that woven designs were like crests; they were recognized as belonging to a particular family.

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.
