Indigenous feminisms, indigenous resurgence, cultural resurgence, land-based practices, community, beadwork, storytelling

IAMD, OCADUniversity

Justine Woods is a Métis interdisciplinary designer based in Tkaronto. She is a current Master of Design Candidate at OCAD University and has a Bachelor of Design in Fashion Design from Ryerson University. Justine's current academic and design research investigates the ways which fashion contributes to efforts of decolonization and indigenous resurgence with focus on indigenous feminisms, beadwork resurgence and land-based design/making practices.

“A creative activity I employ to think through care is beadwork. Beadwork is not only an act of cultural resurgence but is an extremely meditative and therapeutic art form that can be done both individually or communally through beading circles. In addition to beadwork, Visiting is another concept I use to think through care. For me personally, this involves disconnecting from western temporalities and re-centring oneself within pure indigenous ways of knowing and being in relation to land, family and kinship as grounding aspects within everyday life.”
