Through the years, we have organized in person and on-line workshops. Most are around Indigenous knowledge and crafts. For example at one workshop, people were learning the language as they also learned how to make a basket. Workshops included how to scrap and tan a moose hide, how to smoke a moose hide, 2 basket making workshops, medicine pouches, herbal medicine teachings, how to garden, how to can veggies, how to butcher a moose, how to build a sweat lodge, how to put up a Wi’kuom, making Peaked caps and making faceless dolls, trapping. Workshops have been held through-out Wabanaki homelands. Our ability to put on workshops, depends on project funding.
