Indigenous ways of knowing: Cultural celebration and birch-bark basket making
March 17 @ 8:00 am - March 19 @ 12:00 pm$100
$100 per person plus optional meals and accommodations.
Start your spring with a weekend of indigenous ways of knowing and traditional birch-bark basket-making for adults! Our Friday evening begins after dinner with a smudge, a story, and a short dance performance by our First Nations leader, Bernice Jensen. Over the weekend, Bernice will guide authentic First Nations basket-making while sharing traditional knowledge about harvesting, the birch tree, and her culture and history. Leave with new friends, learning, and a keepsake to cherish! All supplies are provided and included in the cost.
This retreat ends at lunch-time on Sunday, leaving time to return home. Bernice (the course instructor) will be assisted by her sister.
