Reclaiming Community: Chilkat Weavers Call for Support – An Artist Talk & Demonstration with Lily Hope (Tlingit)

Join the Friends of Sheldon Jackson Museum for  ), Reclaiming Community: Chilkat Weavers Call for Support – An Artist Talk & Demonstration with Lily Hope (Tlingit), a Zoom event happening on March 26th at 3-3:45pm.

A synopsis of her talk from the artist:

“Chilkat weavers only 100 years ago, had a community network of support for creating ceremonial dance regalia. Due to colonization, nuclear families, climate change, and federal and state restrictions weavers are struggling to do it all themselves. All the design work. All the harvesting and prep work. All the dying. All the spinning. This presentation is a call for support.”

In addition to giving her talk, Hope will demonstrate the laborious prep work that goes into weaving a Chilkat dancing blanket.

This is the last Friends of Sheldon Jackson Museum Winter Share Your Research/ Share Your Culture event for 2022.
