About the Artist: Many of Jeanette Henry's inspirations come from traditional images, history books and stories, along with current fashions, which reflects her identity as a Mi’gmaq/Mohawk Artist. At fourteen, her first job was at the local Cultural Centre where she spent the summer sewing moccasins for the gift shop alongside her mentor, Lita Isaac, and received her first commissioned order. Fifteen years later she remains passionate and dedicated to creativity.

Born in 1987, in Listuguj, Quebec, Jeanette has already experimented with different art forms such as hide tanning, soap stone & wood carving, sewing, beading and quillwork while she attended training for Native Cultural Arts in Northern Alberta. She also participated in a fancy ash basketry course offered by an Elder from Gesgapegiag, Quebec.

ARTIST STATEMENT: " To this day I always have multiple projects going. I get a new ideas and drop everything to start something else, not knowing how it’ll turn out. I’m never scared to try something new and that’s what I try to push others to do. Each item is a reflection of me as an artist and I hope others can see the passion behind my work "

Currently she maintains a full time job, is a part time student and dedicates any additional time to producing new creations, which can be seen on "Listuguj Mi'gmaq Artisans" Facebook group, or Jeanette_Henry on Instagram. She hopes to one day become a well-known Mi’gmaq/Mohawk Artist, and have her pieces displayed in galleries & museums as well as open her own store to showcase, not only her own work but other artists in her community.

Manufacturing

Proudly crafting the world’s finest Indigenous-inspired footwear.

At Manitobah, we use high-quality materials and talented artisans to create the best mukluks and moccasins in the world. It takes a lot of time and effort to produce Manitobah footwear and we take great pride in the comfort, function and beauty we create.

We also take pride in being Canadian, which is why we continue to produce 20 per cent of our footwear at our Indigenous-owned production facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

International Production.

Local Commitment.

Thanks to our incredible global community, Manitobah Mukluks has grown. To achieve this growth we’ve found global partners to help us produce some of our products internationally. I believe this expansion in our production leads to a bigger local impact.

As an Indigenous Canadian, AUTHENTIC to me means being engaged in and contributing to my community. It also means respecting our history while creating positive change for the future. And the best way for me to bring about that change for Indigenous Canadians is to get as many people wearing Manitobah Mukluks as possible.

Our success allows us to work with more local artists, showcase successful Indigenous role models and bring our culture to the world. We also invest in education and employment through our partnership with the Centre for Indigenous Human Resource Development, and I’m particularly proud of our Storyboot project, which helps revive traditional arts in our communities through business-building partnerships with elders and artisans who fashion mukluks and moccasins the traditional way.

Our Walk With Us program is also making a difference by allowing our customers to share in our vision and direct a portion of their sale to the Manitobah program of their choice. It’s simple. For every pair of Manitobah Mukluks sold, we make a bigger impact in our community.

We are proud of our success on the world stage and we welcome the opportunity to compete against all fashion brands. We will continue to make Manitobah more accessible to more people, and we will continue to make footwear using the same high-quality materials and thousand year-old designs that define us — whether it’s a handcrafted Storyboot, Canadian-made item or a mukluk or moccasin produced outside of Canada. I believe that our success as an Indigenous business has been due to our willingness to walk forward while honouring our past.

Thank you for walking with us.
