'When creating a blanket design for Mini Tipi, I felt it would not be genuine to simply adhere to frequently used styles of geometric designs.  This is why I chose to include the subject of wild rice harvesting from my own culture as an Anishnaabe.  Anishnaabe quiltwork was also a source of inspiration for the geometric patterns featured in my design.'- Kennedy

In September, during the harvest moon, the Ojibwe peoples begin the rice harvest. The harvest is done in pairs using poles to hit the rice stocks knocking the grains into the canoe. The rice is an important historic food source for the Ojibwe people that feed their families over the winter months.
