Western red cedars stand as one of the oldest and most revered trees in the forests of Stanley Park. Join us as Contessa Brown Qmdmaxl of the Heiltsuk Nation shares the sacred place of cedar bark in North West Indigenous culture and guides us in some foundational weaving techniques. Listen to stories about cedar and take home your very own cedar rope-twist or rose!
This program will meet at the Stanley Park Pavilion (located near the Stanley Park Bus Loop and Rose Garden). Please try to arrive at least 15 minutes in advance of the program.
Please plan to allow for extra time to finish your weaving, if needed.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
