Celebrate Native American Heritage Month by designing and executing an original piece of bead embroidery using traditional Lenape techniques. Students will learn and create a traditional floral embroidery on a black background. Clan Mother Teri Hislop teaches in the traditional way, not "lecture style," but rather, "demonstrates as we go" with everyone around the table working and talking. Explore Lenape beading and discover how this art form has been used to illustrate stories and teachings of Lenape culture.
