Join us on Saturday, September 17 from 1–3PM for a Beaded Corn workshop with Tsiokeriio!
To give thanks for the continuity of life, we celebrate the abundance of the harvests in the late summer / early fall. To honour that life cycle and create a reminder for ourselves to always give thanks, we will be creating beaded corn keychains.
During the workshop, Tsiokeriio will share stories and teachings round planting, growing, and harvesting from the Kanyenkehà:ka (Mohawk People) as she guides participants through the process of creating their own beaded corn keychains. The techniques taught in this class can also be used to create pendants and earrings.
Tsiokeriio (Dio) Hagen is a Mohawk bear clan beader, painter, singer, and mother from Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory in Ontario. She focuses on incorporating traditional knowledge and skills into modern art, with the mission of bringing a greater understanding and appreciation for Indigenous artwork. Her main objective is to incorporate traditional language and culture into everyday life as much as possible.
