Program Description & Details

In this program, students develop an awareness and respect for the central role that the cedar tree has played and continues to play, in Northwest Coast First Nations cultures. Students take part in a hands-on tree-building activity to learn about the distinct elements of the cedar tree. Students hear stories and handle objects made of cedar bark and cedar wood in order to understand their value and ongoing cultural importance. Students create paper weavings inspired by traditional Haida cedar hat. By the end of the program, they will be able to identify the cedar tree, its distinct components and how cedar is transformed into cultural objects.
