Indigenous Awareness Month with The Fire Station

Indigenous Awareness Month with The Fire Station featuring Jessica McCullough

Meet local artist, Jessica McCullough

Jessica McCullough is a local artist and member of the Hannahville Potawatomi, a tribe in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, approximately 15 miles west of Escanaba. 

When Marsha Moffett, General Manager at The Fire Station Hannahville, first became aware of Jessica’s beaded hats, she knew immediately that Jessica and The Fire Station needed to collaborate on a piece together. After several weeks of work, Jessica handcrafted not just one, but eight custom TFS hats.

In an effort to raise awareness during Indigenous Awareness Month, customers at each TFS location will have the opportunity to donate $1 or more and enter for a chance to win one of the hats. All donations will go to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women USA, an organization that The Fire Station is proud to support.

"It was a big honor to do the beadwork for The Fire Station. It's my passion and helps me relax and heal my daily thoughts."

“My name is Jessica McCullough, I am 55 years old and I am from Hannahville, Michigan. I currently live in Hannahville and The Fire Station is located on my reservation.”

“I started out by making beaded lanyards for my co-workers and local community. Then, through word of mouth, more and more people wanted my beadwork so I started selling around the region at powwows and through extended family and friends.”

“I was forwarded a picture on social media of a beaded hat by one of my friends and decided to make myself one. My three daughters and grandkids also wanted a hat, so I had to make them each one. I wanted to collaborate with The Fire Station after I was encouraged by my family. My family hoped it would be a good way to promote my beadwork and do something for the local community.”

“It is my hope that recipients of the beaded hats feel proud to wear them.”

"Jessica’s work has been seen in our store since just after we opened, most notably her beautiful beaded roach clips. She has been wonderful to work with, and for us to be able to offer local merchandise made by one of Hannahville’s own is something we are beyond thrilled to offer!"
