Beadwork is traditionally and historically women’s work. Like other modes of knowledge originating with women, the production and transmission has historically been characterized as nonintellectual and lesser compared to that of their male counterparts, thus undermining and invalidating it. Another obstacle is the historical categorization of women’s knowledge as “non-knowledge” by the West because of the domestic nature of women’s work, which continues to prop up hierarchical and patriarchal structures.
Beading and other craftwork has a long and rich feminist history. Through my use of beading as a method for creative inquiry, I follow in the footsteps of thousands of years of women across the world who used beading to heal, build community and relationships, tell stories, and share knowledge.
