Biidaapi: s/he comes laughing. (Ojibwemowin)
Boozhoo! Today we meet Maggie Thompson (Fond du Lac Ojibwe) the owner/designer/artist at Makwa Studio, a small knitwear business. When the pandemic hit, she answered the call and fired up her sewing machine. Maggie and her team crank out cotton masks to donate to healthcare workers, alongside creating and selling special ribbon masks celebrating adaptation and resilience.
