Angelique Merasty Levac, a Métis, has revitalized the artistic tradition of birch bark biting and found an entrepreneurial home for her craft and the works of other First Nations in her store, Angelique’s Native Arts. Located in Prince George, the business has been in operation for 14 years. The ability to marry artistic endeavours with an entrepreneurial spirit while meeting the demands of the market place is an excellent role model. Angelique’s talents and success will inspire the next generation of Aboriginal creativity and entrepreneurship.
