Delina White

In May we celebrated Mother's Day with stories of the impact of grandmothers on our lives for our Strong Women series.  Originally a public event, COVID-19 had us come up with a new way of  presenting these stories with hopes of reviving it in the next year or so, when we can all safely come together. 

Delina White’s I Am Anishinaabe fashion designs have walked the runways of the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the world-renowned Indian Market in Santa Fe, New Mexico. And they will soon make their way to the Northwest Indian Community Development Center in Bemidji.

"I have a lot of friends and family members who are two spirit and it really hurts me when they have issues about being bullied and so I'm here to support my two spirit relatives in being who they are." - Delina White
