This beading project is an honouring of the space of the river. Many hands join together and bead the space of the river, culminating in a forty-foot beading of the Shubenacadie River. Indigenous participants are encouraged to embellish using their ancestral knowledge that has been passed down from generation to generation. Non-Indigenous participants are encouraged to keep in mind settler responsibility and issues of cultural appropriation. This is an exercise in building treaty relations between settlers and Indigenous nations and humans to mother earth.
