12” abstract embroidery hoop featuring Czech glass and semi precious stone bead details 

Taken from a texture near Komoka Provincial Park, Ontario - I wanted to share a (very brief) history.

“Once a burial site, the name Komoka derives from the Indigenous name Kah-Ma-Ka, which translates as ‘Home after Death.’ An Indigenous legend tells of a young man from the Muncey tribe and a young man from the Delaware tribe falling in love with a woman named Winona. The young warriors fought over her and both were killed. Upon seeing them both slain, Winona killed herself. The three bodies were said to be have buried at Kah-Ma-Ka, present day Komoka.”
