  /  Medicine Pouch Workshop

Date: Sept. 19 – 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
Location: Calgary
Venue: Inglewood Community Association, Calgary
Lead: Melrene Saloy EagleSpeaker

Traditionally, a medicine pouch is a small bag for items believed to protect, or give spiritual powers to its owner. Historically, medicine men and shamans generally carried a large medicine bundle that could hold numerous items such as seeds, herbs, pinecones, grass, animal teeth or claws, horsehair, rocks, tobacco, beads, arrowheads, bones, or anything else of relatively small size that possessed spiritual value to the bundle’s owner. Warriors also carried bundles that included items that were important to him such as rattles, animal furs and tokens of special value.

A medicine bag is a symbol of your personal medicine to heal you, help you grow, help you love and provide protection. Because the medicine bag is considered a very precious possession that represents a person’s spiritual life, its contents are considered holy and meant to be kept secret by the owner. Some people choose to wear them all the time, others for special occasions.

Join us in this workshop where you will learn to sew and bead your own medicine pouch from moose hide, with lead Melrene Saloy EagleSpeaker, a Blackfoot woman from the Blood Tribe in Southern Alberta, and founder of Native Diva Creations, which is an authentic contemporary First Nations beaded jewelry business.

DETAILS: You’ll meet at 12:45 p.m. at Inglewood Community Association in Calgary. Workshop runs from 1:00 until 3:00 p.m. All supplied included. Beverages and snacks provided.

Ticket Price: $75.00 plus GST
