Story robes

Our kids learnt all about traditional First Nations story telling and legends as well as symbolism and story robes through a lesson you can read about more online here.

The process:
Picking a story, finding and creating symbols, writing them on a robe, colouring them and antiquing them with tea.  Beautiful.

Here are the finished results:

Here are some close ups and the legends that go with them found here:
Peyton - Makoyoohsokoyi (The Wolf Trail)

Mme Merriman - Ksiistsikomm (Thunder)

Taya - Napi and the Black Birch

Julianna - Makoyoohsokoyi (The Wolf Trail)
