Language of the Land: A Basket Weaver's Journey

Wed, Jan 26th 2022, 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Virtual webinar (zoom)

Virtual webinar offered through Sonoma Land Trust.

Join us to hear Clint McKay reflect on his journey of learning basket-weaving traditions, native plants, and other wisdom from his elders. Through stories and personal experiences Clint McKay will reflect on the gifts, spiritual lessons, and weaving traditions he learned from weavers like Mabel McKay, Laura Somersal, and other Pomo and Wappo elders. Today, Clint and his wife Lucy McKay gather plants and regularly sit and weave with family members in order to pass basket weaving traditions on to their children and grandchildren. Their native languages are spoken in their home on a daily basis. Clint will conclude with reflections on current native weaving and the strength of weaving traditions in our area today.

Spanish interpretation will be provided.
