Jaymie and Keri are two sisters based out of St. Albert and Calgary, respectively. They are of Mixed, Métis, Dënësųłinë́, and Dogrib descent and are members of the Fond Du Lac First Nation in Treaty 8 territory. Their work is inspired by their late Great Granny Tralnberg (né Mercredi) and her incredible beadwork they wore and now treasure. The name Proud Wednesday is a play on our Paternal name lineage of Lafferty: which could translate to ‘La fierté’ meaning pride and Mercredi: which relates to ‘Mecredi’ meaning Wednesday. It also states the feeling we get when we get to bead together and share our work- great pride in who we are and where we come from!
