The Bear Gatherer pattern was designed by Aboriginal artist Corrine Hunt.  The bear was the clan symbol of Corrine's great-great grandmother, Anisalaga.  Descended from a line of powerful Chiefs, Anisalaga would spend nearly a year weaving a single blanket to be worn only by noble family members.  Anisalaga wove 13 of these "chilkat robes" but only three remain in the Hunt family.  Corrine has been working on a film to document the other robes.  One was recently repatriated by the Umista Cultural center in Alert Bay with funds from the Canadian Government's National Treasures Fund.
