About Sundaylace Creations
Mariah Battiste, beadwork designer and owner of Sundaylace Creations, was raised in Unamaki (Cape Breton) in Nova Scotia. She is a Mi’kmaw woman who is surrounded by a strong Mikmaq community who has helped her to stay grounded in her culture while exploring business opportunities.
