Today during First Nations time we learned how to weave with cedar. We learned that the cedar strips came from the bark of the cedar tree. Claudia had to cut the pieces of bark into strips and then split them so they were thin enough. The cedar strips were soaked in water so that they would be more flexible for weaving.
We worked with a partner so that one person could hold the strips still while the other person did the weaving.
Teagan-It looks really hard, but it’s actually not that hard.
Brooklynn-It was hard to push the strips up.
Lily-It was really fun and I had a great time. I thought it would be really hard because I hadn’t done it before.
Koa-After we did the weaving it looked really cool.
Taegan-It didn’t really look hard, but it was hard.
May-It was very fun to do it, even though one of mine kept falling off.
Jorja-I had a great time, but asked Claudia for help and found out I had 2 “unders”.
Kezra-I thought mine wouldn’t look good, but then it did.
