Sedalia et Rita Fazio : beading
Sedalia Fazio and her mother, Rita Jacobs Fazio, are both Mohawks from Kahnawake. Rita has been beading since she was a child, just like her daughter. Sedalia has also been dancing since the age of two. Today, although her health prevents her from dancing, she continues to sing and to conduct sweat lodge ceremonies for the benefit of the urban indigenous community of Montréal.
