Full Beaver Moon Gathering: A Talk on Traditional Native Finger Weaving by Mashpee Wampanoag Elder Marlene Lopez, Rabbit Clan Mother @ Great Falls Discovery Center
Nov 16 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
For hundreds of years, the Mashpee Wampanoag people have been finger weaving. Marlene Lopez has been finger-weaving and keeping this art alive by teaching others the knowledge that she has learned for 30 years. The designs are those of the Eastern Woodland and Plains people of Turtle Island during the 18th century. The style of weaving is called warpface. The designs are variations of the diagonal, Chevron, Arrowhead, diamond, flame and lightning. The items woven with these designs are ceremonial sashes, belts, garters, armbands, headbands, and hair-ties. Co-sponsored by DCR and Nolumbeka Project. Free admission. All welcome.
