Moccasin-Making Class

The Cultural Resources Program hosted a two-part class during August for making leather moccasins. Led by Cultural Resources Program Manager Jennifer Bryant, the attendees used provided leather, twine, and sinew to construct moccasins in a traditional design.

During the first class, Takelma Teacher Learner Elizabeth Bryant also taught a lesson, teaching a Takelma version of the song “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes.”

“We are grateful to Centralia Fur and Hide for the designs and material kits,” said Bryant. “We’ve also found some good regalia patterns from Crazy Crow Trading Post.”
