Norma Jean Saulis, Maliseet & Penobscot

"The real threat to whales is indifference. I wanted everyone to see this sculpture, embellished with traditional Wabanaki beadwork, and think of the beauty of the right whale and how they are an important link in the ecology of this world."

Norma Jean Saulis is a First Nation’s woman who continues the heritage of her grandfather by being a member of the Kingsclear First Nation and her grandmother from the Penobscot Nation. Raised with a traditional spirit, Norma is a Pipe Carrier, Cultural/Spiritual Elder, and member of the Negotkuk Women’s Drum Group. Norma creates unique jewelry designs and traditional regalia, and uses her creativity to combine traditional themes with modern inspirations.
