More Great Plains Aboriginal skills demonstrated



More Great Plains Aboriginal skills demonstrated at the Canadian Museum of Civilization

Gatineau, Quebec, February 1, 2007 — From February 8 to 11, the Canadian Museum of Civilization invites you to discover nomadic living with Aboriginal artists Jeff and Kathleen Coleclough. Find out how a rock can be used to make sharp tools and how to paint with crushed rock pigments. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the nomadic peoples of the Plains and their everyday life prior to contact with Europeans. This activity is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Masters of the Plains, on display until September 3, 2007.

Jeff and Kathleen Coleclough are a husband-and-wife team of Ojibway descent. They are the founders of Kakwa, a Métis initiative based in Saskatchewan providing educational programs to museums, historic sites, schools, and school boards.
