Join our Indigenous Neighbours team for a time of storytelling and stitching as Niska artisan Debbie Proulx-Buffalo teaches us how to bead an Every Child Matters pin. We are excited to invite you to gather with us online as we learn and listen.

Here’s a short welcome from Debbie:

“Wachay I’m Debbie Proulx-Buffalo a proud Indigenous woman and member of Waskaganish First Nation. I love beading and creating meaningful pieces of jewelry. Beading has helped me to heal and learn about my Culture.”

A kit will be mailed to you with sewing materials. All you need to bring to your computer is a pair of scissors, a pen or marker, and listening ears. We ask that participants register before January 31st, 2021, at 12pm to ensure the arrival of your sewing kit before the event begins. All proceeds from this event will go toward supporting the Niska program and future workshops. Spots are limited so make sure to sign up soon!
