National Indigenous People’s Day and Wool Weaving Workshop

This Thursday, June 21st, is National Indigenous Peoples Day. This past Sunday, the Port Moody Station Museum celebrated early with a wool weaving workshop led by Alice Guss (Tsawaysia Spukwus). She opened the event with traditional drumming and music, and then taught the attendees of the workshop how to weave wool into bracelets, smartphone cases, and headbands. All those in attendance had an excellent time learning traditional weaving skills, while listening to storytelling and music from Alice Guss. While the workshop was underway, museum staff had National Indigenous Peoples day activities set up, complete with newly created activities to educate young people about indigenous customs and history. We thankĀ Alice Guss, and all those that participated.
