Cherokee Basket Weaving
Let's gather for a fun-filled afternoon/evening of learning and practicing traditional Cherokee Basket Weaving!
About this Event

This class is $5 for self-identified Indigenous/American Indian and trans/two-spirit relatives!

All other students - $25 suggested fee to cover materials and time, but don't let price keep you from attending, please pay what you can.

All ages are welcome, but I'm new to teaching, so youth 12 and under need to have an adult with them.

Classes at Iliff School of Theology (put that in the gps, using the address sometimes takes people to the wrong place), must pay for parking lot, but there's free street parking. Fear not, Iliff is a very queer theological school full of heretics and heathens, plus they let me use this space for free.

Hensci! Salix cvhocefkvtos, vne este Mvskoke/Tsalagi. Hello! My name is Salix, and I am Muscogee/Cherokee. I also have ancestors who are Czech, French, English, Spanish, and Honduran. I am a 'two-spirit' artist and an elder millennial lol. I moved to Cheyenne/Arapaho/Ute country (Denver) a year ago from Kiowa territory and the homelands of many nations, Norman, OK.

I learned how to do Cherokee style basket weaving in Norman, OK, in 2017 from Kathy Haney (Seminole, Muscogee, Shawnee, Delaware, Kickapoo), and I'd really love to share it with you. Weaving is one of my favorite ways to be mindful and centered in community, as well as cultivate creativity and play in my life!
