Spirit Seeds: A Celebration of First Nations Beadwork
On now – October 13, 2014
“Little Spirits”, as they’re known in some First Nation languages, are beautiful objects decorated with tiny glass beads. The tradition of beadwork began when Europeans brought enchanting glass beads as an item of trade, and continues today as an important part of Native life and artistic expression. We celebrate this legacy by sharing historical and contemporary objects and the stories they tell of the artisans who created them.
