We are the crees of Iiyiyuuschii

Long before European ships sailed into James Bay and Hudson Bay, Cree women took great pride in how they prepared materials and sewed their family's clothing and accessories. Designs, which came to the women in dreams, were executed as skilfully as possible. Survival depended upon it. For it was felt that animals were more willing to give themselves to hunters who were beautifully attired.
