Story Capes

Every story cape Brenda creates has it’s own name and story. The flowers on the cape are, as explained by Brenda Lee Asp, the stories of her ancestors. The tiny triangles outside the flower represent the berries. The leaves represent the river systems travelled. The long dark parts in the middle of the petals represent the sun. The big circles inside the petals represent the buttons they used to trade. The small shapes with the dot inside them on the tips of the petals represent the salmon. Finally, the flowers centre represents animal skin.
