Tea & Tales - July 9th

Tea & Tales: Lil'wat Artists July 9th 2019

On Tuesday July 9th from 2-4pm, join us here at the museum for “My Carving Journey” with Jonathan Joe, “Bring Back Cedar Root Weaving” with Master Weaver Antolaya7 Vera Edmonds, and “Regalia Making – Telling My Story” with Mamaya7 Lois Joseph. The theme this year is “Local Art Past & Present”. Tea and baked goods will also be provided for your enjoyment.

Mámaya7 Lois Joseph started teaching right out of high school and received her education B.A. in 1986 after taking courses in the evening and during summer holidays. She has taught grades 4-7, high-school and adult education throughout her 30 years of teaching in schools. She also teaches Lil’wat language and traditional arts. In 1993 Lois developed a new dance group which is the Íswalh (loon) Dance Group. Over the years she trained many young children, youth and adults the dances and traditions specific to Lil’wat Nation. Lois is the manager for the Lil̓wat7úl Culture Centre fully since 2005 and she has been sitting as a Mount Currie Band Councilor for the last 24 years and also sits as a Board of Director for the Squamish Líl̓wat Cultural Centre in Whistler.  Lois has helped to organize Lil'wat artists for the program this summer and we're grateful for her support of the Tea & Tale program.

The artists will be located in the Soo Building beginning at 2pm. Attendees can watch them creating art and experience Lil'wat cultural traditions.  Tea & Treats will be served from 2-4pm at the Shantz house.  Join us tomorrow!

Admission: $2
