Twining Plateau Bags

 Hosted by Aboriginal Programs and Services

This program is now full and we are no longer taking a waitlist.

Join virtually to learn how to twine Plateau Bags with Joanne Alexis and Amber Cardenas.

Joanne and Amber are a young Sqílxʷ (Okanagan) pair who are passionate about their traditional livelihood. At this live virtual event, they will offer an introduction to interior Plateau Bag twining.

Twining has been used for centuries and is commonly referred to as weaving or a weaving technique. The syilx/sqilxw (Okanagan) people have created basketry and bags since time immemorial; one of the creations is the Interior Pleateau Bag. The plateau bag has been used for generations for food gathering and storage. These bags are still created and used to this day by numerous communities of the interior plateau.
