I’m retired. My husband and I trap around here and I take the fur and skin it and tan it and sew it into hats and mitts and I even make teddy bears. I’ve been trapping since 1974 and I’ve been sewing fur since 1991.

We’ve been trapping since 1993. In late Sept, we move to our trap line. This is what we do and where we live throughout the trapping season. We have three children and because our line is not too far from Whitehorse, they can take the bus and go to school. When summer comes we switch roles – I’m with the kids while Andrea is the wage earner.
