Suburbia: Susan Dobson and Keith Moulding

In 1967, twenty-seven women from Standing Buffalo Reserve formed the Sioux Handcraft Cooperative and began making hooked rugs. The project was conceived and initiated by a Fort Qu'Appelle resident, Lorna Ferguson who recognized the potential for adapting colourful Sioux designs to rugmaking. The cooperative flourished for four years, during which time the rugs were exhibited throughout Saskatchewan, and in Montreal, New York and London, England.
