FAMILY SUNDAY WITH MI’KMAQ ELDER MARILYN FRANCIS : MI’KMAW WAISISK/MI’KMAW ANIMALS
We are pleased to have Mi’kmaq Elder Marilyn Francis from Acadia First Nation in Yarmouth, with us to share her wisdom and to help you explore your animal spirit of creativity. Marilyn will teach you about animal names in the Mi’kmaw language. Experience this introduction to the language while painting your own animal flash cards.
The workshop is inspired by the Terroir exhibition which presents art inspired by the environment. Artist Alan Syliboy’s book, Mi’kmaw Waisisk, will also provide inspiration for the afternoon.
Family Sunday is a time to enjoy working together. All materials are provided. Children 5-12 years of age, with their parents, grandparents or caregivers. Parents must stay with the children.
Members free, general admission applies to non-members.
