National Indigenous People’s Day – Discussion with Dominique O’Bonsawin and Beading Check-In
June 21 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
This year, in honour of National Indigenous People’s Day, the New Canadians Centre is committed to learning more about Indigenous culture. We have partnered with Cedarlilie Bead Shop, owned and operated by Dominique O’Bonsawin, an Abenaki and French-Canadian artist, to bring you a Community Art Project to bead strawberry pins. In many Indigenous cultures, the strawberry is known as the heart berry, evoking love and reconciliation.
Pick up a free beading kit with all the materials you need at the Peterborough Public Library, then follow the tutorial video supplied. More info here.
Join us on National Indigenous People’s Day – June 21 at 5pm for a virtual check-in and discussion with Dominique where she will share more about what beading means to her as an Indigenous person and will provide support to you as you bead your strawberry pin. Register for this virtual discussion here.
This is a great activity for all ages.
