Event description

Description

Explore indigenous knowledge and contemplate the power of nature in our lives as we examine nine early Salish blankets from the Museum of Vancouver collection. Elaine Humphrey and Terry Loychuk offer a closer look at raw materials using advanced microscopy, now confirming raw materials such as: hair from woolly dog, mountain goat, and sheep, plant fibers including hand spun cotton, and the use of diatomaceous earth. The presence of Salish wool dog hair is an exciting discovery, providing a relative date of the late 1800s or earlier! Join us to learn of these interested findings. We will feature blankets at this special event.

Hosted by master weaver, and MOV Board member, Chief Janice George.
