Reclaiming Community: Chilkat Weavers Call for Support - Artist Talk & Demo with Lily Hope (Tlingit)

Lily Hope wears a robe she wove.Saturday, March 26, 3:00-3:45 pm on Zoom

“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.” - Lily Hope

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.
