SIX NATIONS — Six Nations folk quilter Irma Martin was at the Solidarity Day celebration at Chiefswood Park Saturday selling tickets for a raffle for a hand made quilt she designed five years ago and only recently completed. The quilt depicts several Pow Wow dancers in full regalia. 

“Eight of the dancers depicted are local dancers from our area, and the rest are dancers I have met traveling the Pow Wow trail,” says Martin.

Proceeds from the raffle are to help offset some of the cost of running the Pow Wow at Six Nations every year.

“I made one 10-years ago as well,” she recalls. “That was auctioned off too. I worked with Evelyn Bomberry selling tickets and working on that one and after she passed, I let it go, thinking I couldn’t do it without her. This past spring, I thought about it again and thought that she would like me to finish it and so that’s what I did.”

Along with Martin, helping to sell tickets on the quilt were two friends, Dianna Skye and Betsy Buck.

Tickets are being sold at the Village Plaza Mondays and Wednesdays until the Pow Wow at the end of the month. Then they will operate a booth at the Pow Wow with the winning ticket drawn June 27th, on the last day of the Pow Wow.
