The english translation of her Spirit name is “Standing Strong Woman”
She belongs to the Deer Clan and is a member of  the Migmaw Nation
Maura Tynes
The english translation for her Spirit name is “Early Morning Woman”
She belongs to the Bear Clan and is a member of the Migmaw Nation
Isabelle Ellesworth
The english translation of Her Spirit name is “Sturgeon Woman”
She belongs to the Bear Clan, and she is Anishnawbe (Ojibway).

All of these women made their own hand drums.   
Hand drums are usually made out of deer skin and sometimes elk, caribou or buffalo skin.  
The drums are sacred. 
The sound of the drum beat reminds us of the first sound we heard even before we were born – the sound of our mother’s heart beat.
