Landscape as Muse

Season Two - Episode 20

Birch Forest with Sally Milne
Birch is endemic to the world’s boreal forest regions – including all Canadian provinces and territories. The beauty and tranquility of the northern birch forest has long been a comfort and inspiration to Woodland Cree artist Sally Milne. Raised on the traplines, Milne is a respected Medicine Woman and internationally recognized birch bark biter. She sees herself, and her work, as a bridge between the traditional ways and the future of her people. While creating her unique pieces for us, Milne also shares her values and philosophy, which form the basis for a life of fulfilment.
