About the Artist:

A Cree from Mathias Colomb First Nation, Edna raised five children by making moccasins, using skills learned from her Cree grandmother and mother. Today, at her store in Winnipeg, Edna makes designer dresses with beadwork, fringe and other Aboriginal themes.

Contribution to Manitobah Mukluks:

Edna Nabess designed and crafted the original storyboots bearing her name, and continues to work with us on designing beadwork patterns.

Traditional artists building traditional businesses.


Manitobah Mukluks' Storyboot Project aims to help revive the traditional arts by creating business-building partnerships with elders and artisans who fashion mukluks and moccasins the traditional way.

From these artists they commission original handcrafted footwear and produce a limited collection of replicas called Storyboots.

Through their Storyboot Project they offer a 50/50 profit-sharing agreement that turns artisans into true partners in the business of bringing their Aboriginal footwear to the world.

In this way Manitobah Mukluks hope to help Aboriginal communities everywhere benefit from the knowledge of their ancestors and keep traditions alive.
