My name is Carie McBain. I am a wife to my amazing husband Jason, Mom of 1, a proud traditional Mi’kmaq dancer and artist.

Growing up, I always wanted to learn more about my culture and traditions. Over the last few years, a good friend of mine has taken me under their wing and helped me in my journey to knowing more about myself and my ways. She’s helped me gain confidence in my beadwork and has stood by me as I asked many questions about teachings and guidance.

My love for beading and learning traditional dancing has been lifesaving. I suffer from PTSD and beading and dancing has truly grounded me.

My goal was to learn to bead and see in order to create my own traditional regalia. This is where Carie McBainCreations came about. I bead to share my love, passion and stories.

I am grateful to run a successful side business involving what I am most passionate about.
