Gravenhurst–Walk With A Soft Moccasin–Day 1

September 14 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

This is a special 2024 healing project that we have entitled: Walk With A Soft Moccasin.

Over the past few months participants have been working with various deer and moose hyde projects and building their creative beading skills. The end goal is to have urban Muskoka Indigenous community members feel confident with these materials to now make the ultimate–their own pair of moccasins.

Day 1 is where the participants will work on moose hyde and create a personalized beading design. It is not expected that participants will complete both vamps (the tops of the moccasin) today. Rather, participants will get a good start and then take home to complete before we gather in October to assemble the moccasins.

Various moccasins from the 1800’s will be on site to use as inspiration and teachings.

Due to the costs involved in a moccasin workshop and the need to make this available to as many urban Muskoka Indigenous community members as possible, this activity is not open to our non-Indigenous allies at this time. Maarsii, Miigwetch, Nia:wen, Thank You for understanding the need for this healing activity among the Indigenous community.
