Description

Be part of something special this October and November. Three events. Three Saturdays.

One exciting program: Reclaiming Cultural Identity.

In partnership with the Niagara Regional Native Centre the museum is presenting workshops and talks on Wampum Belts, Indigenous Beadwork in Niagara and Creation Stories. Led by Rick Hill (Beaver Clan of the Tuscarora Nation) experts share their wisdom and skill, and attendees participate in creating lasting items.

October 28: Niagara Beadwork, Then and Now

November 18: Creation Story Revisited: Indigenous Artists Reflect Creation Teaching

Niagara Falls History Museum, 5810 Ferry St., Niagara Falls, ON, L2G 1S9

Every workshop runs from 2:00 – 4:00 on a Saturday.

This program is for Indigenous and non-Indigenous attendees, and for people of all ages. Special programming has been arranged for children in attendance.
