About Sheila Cailleau
Born and raised near Kenora in Northwestern Ontario, Sheila Cailleau is the founder and owner of Magpie Chiq in Winnipeg. Inspired by nature and her own Indigenous roots, Sheila works with leather and fur to create beautiful, luxurious and functional items: boots, mitts, shoes and bags. Each handcrafted, hand sewn item captures the authenticity of our northern land as we live it today, in a coffee shop, at a hockey rink, a summer festival, on a frozen lake, wherever your spirit takes you.

About the Bear Clan Patrol
Bear Clan Patrol came about as a result of the ongoing need to assume our traditional responsibility to provide security to our Aboriginal Community. The concept behind the patrol is community people working within the community to provide personal security in the inner-city in a non-threatening, non-violent and supportive way. The Patrol operates out of the Bear Clan Den located at 584 Selkirk Ave.
Patrols take place: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: 6:00pm – 9:00pm / Saturday & Sunday: 1:00pm – 4:00pm
