We Are All Treaty People: Stitch your own needlework Treaty 6 sampler

Ages: 14+/Adults

We are all Treaty people: What does that mean to us as a country, a community and as individuals? A treaty is a relationship between two nations. Treaty 6 covers central Alberta and Saskatchewan and everyone who lives in this area, Indigenous and non-Indigenous people, are responsible for maintaining this relationshipOver 7 weeks participants will dive into what Treaty means to them by exploring the museum’s collections and archives, personal stories, and historical and modern events. Explore the history, impact, and legacy of Treaty 6 and make a needlework sampler that is unique to your relationship with land, place, and community.

Samplers have been made for centuries by needleworkers to showcase their skills. The samplers created will deviate from tradition as samplers made during the course will be intentionally stitched by participants to reflect themselves. Each week an aspect of Treaty 6 will be discussed, and participants will use the suggested patterns as a jumping off point to stitch a design in response to the topic. This course is suitable for beginners and no prior skill is needed.
