Family Workshop: Hide Pouches — Canadian Museum of History

Saturday, June 11 and Sunday, June 12, 2022
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (while supplies last)
Canadian History Hall Lobby

Makatew, a local Indigenous company, offers hands-on instruction on how to make hide pouches as you lace together your own. Use locally sourced white-tail deer leather and synthetic sinew to create your own hide pouch to take home. Hear more about the use of these hide pouches in certain Algonquin traditions. Connect past practices to contemporary Indigenous culture.

Drop-in, while supplies last. All activities are offered in English and French and are included with Museum admission.
