Mask Making Workshop with Violet Duncan

March 29 @ 5:30 pm - April 5 @ 6:30 pm EDT

Learn to make masks with Violet Duncan, Native American hoop and powwow dancer

Violet Duncan is known for her storytelling and performances across the world. Violet, who splits her homes between Arizona and Alberta, Canada, facilitates workshops to promote spiritual wellness and cultural education across the US, Canada, and Europe. She is a proud member of the Plains Cree of Kehewin Cree Nation and Taino. She held the title of Miss Indian World in 2006 and was featured in Nelly Furtado’s music video Big Hoops.

After becoming the mother of four children, Violet saw a need for Native American representation in literature. Violet took it upon herself to author the children’s books When We Dance and Let’s Hoop Dance!.

In this workshop, participants learn to make a take home mask craft — Bear, Wolf & Bird masks. Each animal created in this mask making workshop comes from the traditional stories that Violet shares in her presentations.

Reserve a spot to the mask making workshop. Masks and vaccination cards required.

Pay what you can | Suggested donation: $5-$15. Donations will be accepted at the door or donate in advance here.
