Stoney Nakoda Beading Workshop
Join us Sunday, November 20th in an afternoon workshop led by Nakoda Nation Elder Pauline Twoyoungmen and beading artists to learn to bead a pin to wear on one’s shirt or coat.
Participants will learn in small groups, each led by a beading artist, as an opportunity to get to know each other and build relationships with our First Nations neighbours.
The subject of the pin will be an Indigenous symbol to represent your support of the planned Indigenous Centre in Cochrane.
Following the workshop, we will have a social time with Elder J. R. Twoyoungmen. J.R. is a retired school teacher and had a vital role in the Stoney Cultural Education Program from 1971-1975. He loves to continue teaching contemporary history and kindly answers our questions.
