IMG_4530Skokomina is Chinook -the common language used during the fur-trade- for American Dipper.

IMG_4531IMG_4532The Skokomina headdress was my favorite of Catherine’s designs. Skokomina was the funniest character in the play. She was so mischievous and made me laugh consistently every night. The morning of closing I found a bird in flying around the designery. I propped open the door till it found it’s way out. Looking at pictures of American dippers I’m pretty certain it was one of these birds.
