Workshops

2020 - 2021 Workshops:

 

Basket weaving

       

Snow snakes

       

The students learned about many of the activities that Native Americans enjoy in the fall including harvesting crops and basket weaving.  Afterwards they made their own baskets from reeds soaked in water to soften and make them more pliable.

        Our winter workshop focused on winter activities of Indian tribes and how the people come together as a community in the winter months, play games and tell stories.  One competition that they have is gliding snow snakes in the snow to see whose can go the farthest.  The students got the opportunity to make their own snow snakes.

Our final workshop last year was about the many different types of moccasins that Native Americans wear and how they make them.  The students were given the materials to make their own pair.
