About the Event
Traditional Moccasin Teachings Proudly Crafting Our Journeys
Moccasins continue to serve as practical outerwear, as well as pieces of fine Indigenous handiwork and artistry.
While Indigenous peoples have their own ways of making moccasins, the design of the moccasin often reflect the maker or wearer’s heritage, community or personal history.
Moccasin decorations often provide spiritual protection in the form of certain symbols, which remind the wearer of sacred places, beings or teachings.
Elders and artists in many Indigenous communities continue to preserve this traditional footwear by teaching new generations about moccasin-making and decorating techniques.
Join this event and immerse yourself in an age-old Indigenous culture of practicality, beauty and spirituality.
