This gift set is a great way to show someone how much you appreciate them. Designed with a 'relaxation' theme, each gift will help her unwind and feel good. Best yet, each item has been designed by Canadian artisans with authentic Native American style. There is nothing like a cozy pair of Canadian handmade moccasins from Laurentian Chief. These women's moccasins are black suede with black rabbit fur to match the color scheme of this gift set. They have a hand-beaded thunder bird Indian design on the vamp. Also included is a Maxine Noel "Eagle's Gift" hardcover journal and porcelain mug perfect to warm her on the coldest of days. Be sure to select the correct size of moccasins for this gift set.

These women's black genuine suede beaded moccasin slippers fit true to size. Order the same as your regular shoe size. They do not come in half sizes. For half sizes go down to the next full size. (8½ order size 8)
Genuine leather should fit snugly at first as the leather will stretch and mold to your foot for a comfortable fit. The length should always feel right when you first put the moccasins on. (your toe should never feel like it is busting out of the seam)
Ioyan Mani - "to walk beyond" - is Maxine's Sioux name that reveals her gift. Maxine is Oglala Sioux, born on the Birdtail Reservation in Manitoba. The eldest of eleven children, she learned to draw among a loving family on a quiet reserve. In residential school she experienced the struggles of submersion of the native spirituality and culture, which brought her strength and enrichment. Maxine was appointed in 2019 as a member of the Order of Canada for her work as a visual artist and for encouraging and promoting creative expression in Indigenous communities.
A self-taught artist, Maxine is skilled in many media. She seeks through the use of fluid images, flowing lines and subtle colours, to present essential characteristics of the Native people: their sensibilities, generosity and loving nature. Maxine has received honours and accolades for her work with Native cultures, and she speaks around the country on art and on social issues, assisting in bridging the gap between Native and non-Native, young and old.
Maxine was a recipient of the Order of Canada in 2019 for her notable achievements.
