Spirit Seeds: A celebration of Indigenous Beadwork
On view through December 14, 2019
Mississippi Valley Textile Museum
Almonte, Ontario

“Spirit Seeds” is a rich exploration of historical and contemporary indigenous beadwork from the Great Lakes and Northeastern regions. Within the beadwork, cultural stories are shared and preserved. Beadwork from the 1800s, a period of great change for the indigenous people, often symbolized a narrative of survival. More contemporary beadwork contributes to this legacy. Join us in celebrating the beauty and meaning of “Spirit Seeds.”
