View Jennifer Sapiel Neptune: Penobscot Beadworker
UMaine Wabanaki Studies, Moving Image, 00:06:36

Jennifer is the only individual in any of the four tribes that makes beadwork in the traditional style of the region. She talks about the loss of these pieces within the community and what it will mean for them to be brought back. She talks about the materials that she uses and how she does this style of beadworking. Her style has changed over time as she has had opportunities to study pieces in Museum collections and then make new pieces that draw inspiration from the collars and peaked caps that she has studied.
