Through online social engagement with the global community we will connect through an interactive art experience reflecting on 'kitchen table talks' or 'bead and bitch' gathering hosted by artist Dayna Danger.
'Metis Kitchen Table Talks' were started by Cathy Mattes and Sherry Farrell Racette, two influential and prolific Metis scholars and knowledge keepers.
The concept is simple, to gather around tables, usually ones large and round, beading, eating, crafting, sharing, laughing, exchanging stories, passing along secrets, smoking and crying together.
Many Metis people were raised this way and have fond memories of their mothers, grandmothers, fathers, aunties and uncles passing on knowledge in the heart of the home, the kitchen.
Within the context of a digital occupation we will gather around the table with an International community online, all are welcome to approach the craft of their choice as we come together to talk and exchange with whoever decides to join in and engage.
Coffee, tea and materials to work with are encouraged!
Registration link coming soon.
You'll be the first to hear the latest Mayflower news, events, and more.
