Marion Hunt-Doig

Vanderhoof, British Columbia

Marion Hunt-Doig is a cultural trailblazer and educator. Since 1974, Marion has presented her First People’s Program, sharing the traditions of the First Nations culture and heritage to children and adults in her community, in BC and around the world. Marion’s unique program is part museum exhibit, part lecture and part dance recital, all designed to highlight the First Nations culture. The centerpiece of her program is the button blankets that she so carefully makes. A talented fabric artist, these blankets tell the story of her family. Marion is a living example of how to build bridges between cultures and encourage relationships and partnerships that result in an enriched community.
