As a reminder:
The Damariscotta River Association is very proud to be offering the Wabanaki
Living Skills and Culture Program from October 4 through October 15 to area
schools and groups in 2010! This fall, students are invited to come to
Blackstone Point at the DRA farm to learn a variety of outdoor living skills
in the tradition of Maine�s native people.
Participants will engage in a variety of activities including
building wigwams, digging groundnuts, scraping a deer hide, making cedar
string and spoons from birch bark. Students will experience being
outdoors and handling a variety of natural materials first-hand. Sarah
Gladu, the DRA Education Director, is providing coordination and teaching of
the program. This year we are very fortunate to have David Moses Bridges, of
the Passamaquoddy tribe, teaching with us. David will teach students about
native uses of birch bark and provide students with an opportunity to try
etching their own birch bark design to take home. David builds traditional
birch bark canoes with materials he
gathers. One of these beautiful and functional canoes will be on display
during the program.
This year, David will also be building a birch bark covered wigwam in front
of the DRA Heritage Center which will be available for students to view
during the program.
