Buy Tickets

Nimble fingers, soft hide, powerful stories.

Saturday, June 15, 2024
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (while supplies last)

Makatew, a local Indigenous company, will offer hands-on instruction to help you lace together your own hide pouch. Using locally sourced white-tail deer leather and synthetic sinew, create your own pouch to take home. You will learn more about the use of these hide pouches in certain Algonquin traditions, connecting past practices to contemporary Indigenous culture.

Drop-in activity, while supplies last. All activities are offered in English and French and are included with Museum admission.
