Hollett was living in Yellowknife in 1977, working as a teacher. One of her students was from Holman Island and she commissioned the student's mother (on Holman Island) to make this parka. It has the Holman Island Co-op label on it because it was commissioned through a store in Yellowknife that worked with the Holman Co-op. The donor had specified to the maker that she would like Delta Braid and white fox fur as part of the design. (The maker's name was not recorded.)
