Join Marge and Cassandra Johnson, two Cree artists from Alberta, to make an authentic Cree craft. While you craft under the starry sky at Elk Island National Park, this mother-daughter duo will share information about Cree culture and the significance of the chosen craft.
The Medicine Wheel has been used by generations of various First Nations groups for health and healing. It embodies the Four Directions as well as Father Sky, Mother Earth, and Spirit Tree, all of which symbolize dimensions of health and the cycles of life. The Medicine Wheel that you will be creating will be made of beads and hide.
After crafting, roast bannock over a fire, slather it with some homemade jam, and share stories with new friends!
