Event overview

11:00 am to 12:00 pm

Use buckskin, beads and hide lacing to craft a handmade medicine bag! Traditionally, medicine bags were used hold medicinal herbs or treasures that provide protection for the wearer who may be on a spirit quests, hunting and gathering, journeying to neighbouring community, or everyday protection and reminders. Some of the more common contents for medicine bags are tobacco, sage, sweet grass or other items deemed special or spiritual, such as crystals or small carvings.
 
Participants will pick up craft supplies from the library before the event. For youth ages 8-12.

This program is hosted in partnership with the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre.
