Sarah Knudson

Fort Yukon, Alaska

    My parents are Stephen and Sara J. Henry. My grandparents are Paul and Lilly Henry and Sam and Jennie Herbert of Chalkyitsik.

    I have been sewing beadwork most of my life. My mother Sara J. Knudson and my grandmother Jennie Herbert taught me to sew beadwork. All of my family members are artists, it is a gift from my mother. I was also taught Athabascan beadwork at Sheldon Jackson College in Sitka, Alaska. The course was “Alaska Art.”

    I love to sew Athabascan style beadwork, it’s a time-love piece. It provides good income and it is beautiful art I can give to my family.

    We are one big extended in the Yukon Flats, there is nothing like it. I love our traditional seasonal diet, nothing beats a pan full of fryed moose meat or boiled moose ribs for soup.

    I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts, I am married, and I have 3 grandsons.
