“My inspiration comes from my family, particularly my mother and grandmother who have both passed on. My grandmother Ruby McFarland taught me how to bead and weave when I was a young girl, my mother Lois Broncheau showed my how to make regalia for my children as we traveled the PowWow trail. My grandmother had a small craft and supply shop in her home, I would like to continue that legacy with Ruby’s. I enjoy making roses and flowers, roses was one of my family favorite designs on both my mother and fathers side, along with geometrics. I feel almost the simpler designs make the most beautiful accents to my work. I am a Umatilla/Nez Perce Native enrolled with the Umatilla Tribe.” -Melinda Broncheau
