Biography
Alaynee Goodwill-Littlechild is a noted artist in contemporary beading and quillwork. A Sioux of Lakota and Dakota heritage and raised in the Treat Six community of Maskwacis, AB, Alaynee says she has been fortunate to have been surrounded by “my culture and taught the history and traditional practices of my people. The women in my family have mentored me and every piece I create is influenced by those teachings. My worldview and lived experience as an indigenous woman have helped me to evolve as an artist and designer.” Recently, she has been a contributing designer to the “BYellowtail Collective” in conjunction with fashion designer Bethany  Yellowtail.www.byellowtail.com/collections/alaynee-goodwill. Recent exhibitions include “Eye of the Needle”, Glenbow Museum, Calgary, 2017. Currently Alaynee has select pieces for purchase accompanying the exhibition “Art of Native America: The Charles and Valerie Diker Collection”, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, NY.

ARTIST STATEMENT:

“This project is important to me because as a woman I’ve been helped and guided my many amazing women in my life. I am grateful for the unconditional support and love of others. These two pieces are in honor of sisterhood, specifically to honor the relationship I have with my sisters. I recently lost my sister and working on these pieces has helped me in my grieving process. It also helped me to find strength and healing.
Like the traditional women’s pipe and medicine bags that hold our sacred medicines, knowledge and teachings my sisters embody that sacredness. It was my intention to translate their energies, love and spirit into each of these pieces.”
