FROM GUEST EDITOR CANDICE ENGLISH: "I have spent the past seven years not only building The Farmer's Daughter Fibers but also using it as a vessel for healing my past, my generational trauma, my family, and my community. Through that healing and creativity we started our non-profit organization, Sisters United, centered around healing Indigenous women, children, and families while reclaiming grassroots organizing form an Indigenous perspective.
"The patterns in this issue are a representation of hard and soft duality in the American West. In addition to the patterns in this issue, you will find a piece from Blackfeet Elder, Pauline Matt (my Mom!), who shares her traditional medicine rituals and a tea recipe. You will also find a piece about Indigenous art and its connection to healing. I asked artists I respect and love to share their stories and we are grateful for their words."
