Helen was born and raised in Fort McPherson, where she still currently resides. Helen honours her mother Bertha Francis, who passed away last year, and continues to practice traditional sewing skills that her mother taught.
Sewing an array of items, Helen can be found busy sewing slippers, canvas, rabbit boots, cardholders and many other crafts using traditional materials such as furs and sinew.
