Debra Sparrow weaves together the past and the present by reviving the blanket-making traditions of the Coast Salish communities. Through her Blanketing the City project, Sparrow wraps the city of Vancouver in the colorful, intricate designs that are the foundation of her people. Every time she creates a blanket, she’s building a bridge to her ancestors and repatriating lost connections. For the Musqueam people, weaving blankets is not just art, it’s a way of life.
