  • Cynthia Boehm

    Cynthia Boehm was born and raised in Norway House, where traditional practices were a part of her home and community. She began making beaded moccasins as gifts for her family, and it became a passion. She is grateful for her mother’s teachings and all she has learned from many crafters, Elders and workshops. She now offers her original designs to the public. Her goal is to continue to further her skills and knowledge of history and to share this beautiful, traditional art form with others.
