Harriet LaSargeWeaving

Mary’s sixth weaving is of Harriet LaSarge from the St. Croix Band of Chippewa Indians. Wanda McFaggen, the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the St. Croix Band, wrote this about her: “Harriet had a special light that surrounded her and a sparkle in her eyes you couldn’t miss. Her gentle way towards all of us and just people in general is something I always remember her by. Such a soft spoken lady with her heart of gold is what I miss the most. She always made time for everyone in the community.”

Harriet’s clan was the marten clan, thus the inclusion of the American marten across her heart.
