Create your own Timeline that will illustrate the 12 000 year journey of Indigenous People in Canada. The Timeline will begin all the way back to the evidence of Indigenous People on Canadian soil and continue to present day.
Participants will mold, shape and create their own beads that signify pertinent periods in Indigenous history. These beads will be added to the other 1200 beads for an impactful and educational display. We will then go on our own journey through the 12 000 years via a tactile and oral conversation.
Length of workshop: two sessions with two hours each
First session: introduction to the Timeline / making of the beads
Second session: building the Timeline / discussion
