Baskets and Babies: Honoring California Indian Woven Knowledge – Full Day Workshop
Traditional Ecological Knowledge Workshop
The weaving of baskets represents the journey through life. As the weaver interlaces strands, they pray, reflecting on the interconnectedness of all life. This is what gives a basket strength. Join us for a day of celebrating California Indian basket makers and the traditional ecological knowledge for protecting all life that is woven into them. In this day-long workshop, participants will learn how to make their own basket, start to finish. Throughout the day, California Indian knowledge bearers will share the significance of weaving, the baby basket and cradleboard revitalization movement, and traditional child-raising methods. This event takes place outdoors, down by the ocean at McNears Beach Park just 15 minutes from the conference grounds.
We will provide a light breakfast and fully-catered Indigenous foods lunch.
With invited presenters Leah Mata-Fragua (Northern Chumash), Sage LaPena, Cutcha Risling Baldy, L Frank Manriquez, Edward Willie, Nikki Myers and CIMCC Youth.
