Cultural Crafts

May 2001 Contest

Education can involve more than words. We can learn about ourselves and our culture by learning about crafts.

Making talking sticks, baby rattles, baskets, beadwork, friendship bracelets, quilts, key chains, ribbon shirts, shawls, bows, leather-work, or carvings may speak to students in very special ways.

Help us to honour our culture and our elders. Share with us!
