DESCRIPTION


Please Register for BOTH the Event & Button Blanket Workshop


Friday, June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day. This is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. This date was chosen because it corresponds to the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, and because for generations, many Indigenous Peoples’ groups have celebrated their culture and heritage at this time of year.

Register early for the button blanket workshop. Learn about the significance of the West Coast Button Blanket then join us for food.
