Keith Sunchild is a Plains Cree artist from Thunderchild First Nation, Saskatchewan. He has been beading for over 15 years. It all started from a beading project in a cultural Cree class in high school and his passion for beading grew from there. Throughout the years, Keith has created beaded products such as earrings, barrettes, lanyards and card holders as well as fully beaded regalia accessory sets. He now helps to facilitate workshops at Wanuskewin, sharing the knowledge that he acquired over his many years of beading.
“Once I was taught how to make a beaded lanyard, I haven’t put down my beading needle since and now here I am 16 years later, still doing the thing that I love and I continue to enjoy creating beautiful beaded pieces for others.”
