"Mother Earth turns, and with a gentle wave of her hand another season passes" - Maxine Noel

This umbrella makes a statement whether it's opened or closed due to the beautiful artistic design from Native artist Maxine Noel. The umbrella is a revolutionary design where the umbrella opens up-side-down, so you stay dry when you get in the door or the car. When opened, this umbrella measures 107 cm spread and 42 cm when closed. It has an automatic open with wooden handle.
Ioyan Mani - "to walk beyond" - is Maxine's Sioux name that reveals her gift. Maxine is Oglala Sioux, born on the Birdtail Reservation in Manitoba. The eldest of eleven children, she learned to draw among a loving family on a quiet reserve. In residential school she experienced the struggles of submersion of the native spirituality and culture, which brought her strength and enrichment. Maxine was appointed in 2019 as a member of the Order of Canada for her work as a visual artist and for encouraging and promoting creative expression in Indigenous communities.

A self-taught artist, Maxine is skilled in many media. She seeks through the use of fluid images, flowing lines and subtle colours, to present essential characteristics of the Native people: their sensibilities, generosity and loving nature. Maxine has received honours and accolades for her work with Native cultures, and she speaks around the country on art and on social issues, assisting in bridging the gap between Native and non-Native, young and old.

Maxine was a recipient of the Order of Canada in 2019 for her notable achievements.
