Storytelling: Making Connections with First Nations Art
March 2, 1-3 p.m.
In Ojibwe culture, winter is a time for storytelling. Amber invites you to attend a gathering where we will view
and discuss a selection of traditional and contemporary art works created by First Nations artists. Light refreshments will be provided. Space is limited to 12 participants.
Mazinaabidoo’an (bead it on a loom): An Investigation of Treaty Agreements
April 14, 1-4 p.m.
Amber invites you to attend a treaty and bead-loom workshop. What makes a promise a promise? We will engage in a discussion about treaties: What is a treaty and who is a treaty for? Is the land we currently reside on connected to an active treaty? We will apply those learnings to the design and creation of our own beaded agreement. A small materials fee applies. Space is limited to participants.
