Dorothy Grant

Raised in the Haida community (Raven Clan) of Old Masset, Dorothy Grant now lives and works in South Surrey, British Columbia. She learned traditional women's arts, such as spruce weaving, from Haida elder Florence Edenshaw Davidson, and in particular how to make ceremonial button appliqué robes. Grant attended the Helen Lefeaux Diploma School of Fashion Design and makes clothing using appliquéd designs. She has made ceremonial regalia for use by her community, for exhibition, and for the dance troupe Tuulgundlaas waal xaadaas (Rainbow Creek Dancers).
