Week number two was fantastic! We had 17 people come to help us sew including grandmothers, moms, aunties, alumni, students and two dads! Board members from Spotted Eagle joined forces to work on a beautiful ribbon skirt as did a new family to our school (mom, dad and daughter), sewed a ribbon skirt as a family project.
MIIGWECH – YAW^KO – WAEWAENEN – PINAGIGI (THANK YOU) to Dawn Hamilton who donated ribbon – she saved the day! We know there are more donations coming and we will be sure to acknowledge everyone who sends supplies or garments each week!
PLEASE NOTE: WE WILL NOT BE SEWING ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 2019 DUE TO THE BEAR MOON POW WOW.
