Moccasins by Mandi Montour


Traditional footwear worn by almost all First Nations people, each of whom has its own style.  They allow for a natural substance to keep us connected on our Mother Earth. Most Moccasins are adorned with floral patterns to remind us with each step to walk gently on the Earth as we share it with the most delicate of creations.   Beadwork can be created to reflect an Individual’s spirit, colors, or personality.

Mandi makes and teaches moccasins in Cree Style, the way she was taught by her extended family. She has adapted a few other styles for fit and fur preference.

Tkwasit Mamalis – Mandi Montour

Member of the Lenape/Delaware Nation on Six Nations of The Grand River, Mandi is mixed heritage Lenape/Delaware, Anishinaabe, Irish and German.

Mandi grew up in Welland, Ontario Canada, located in the Niagara Region in a big, diverse family that allowed her to grow and learn about her Culture and traditional teachings by travelling to family on Six Nations and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and to extended Cree Family in Northern Ontario and Québec’s territories.

Named Tkwasit Mamalis after the Deer, which translates to Gentle Fawn, she is a member of a large family and Community of hunters and gatherers that strive towards Food Sovereignty and the Perseverance and Protection of Treaty Rights to hunt, fish and trap for Six Nations and beyond. Much of the organic material that is harvested from these hunts is the media for Mandi’s work.

A busy Mother-of-2, Daughter, Artist, Crafter and Workshop facilitator for her business, Sweet Dreams and Native Things, she always takes time to teach anyone who wants to learn, as traditions can only be carried on if they are passed down to the next generations.
