I was invited to participate in Metis Day at Discovery Harbour in Penetanguishene, Ontario.
I spent the day with my fingerweaving demonstration. I also introduced people to the interlinking method and sprang.
Around me there were many other very interesting displays, beadwork, leatherwork, rug hooking, moose hair tufting, porcupine quillwork, and live music and dancing.
Discovery Harbour Métis Day was a very pleasant event, certainly seems to deliver quite a lot for the $7 entry fee. Well worth the trip. I’m hoping to be invited to return again.
Carol acknowledges that we are on Treaty 1 territory, the traditional gathering place of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene people and the traditional homeland of the Métis people. Carol also acknowledges that sprang is part of many indigenous traditions and found in various forms all over the world. Let us re-discover this technique together.
