Local knowledge keeper to teach Brock community about black ash baskets

Members of the Brock community are invited to take part in a traditional Indigenous teaching in an unconventional format.

On Thursday, Jan. 21, local knowledge keeper Angela Elijah will facilitate an online traditional teaching on black ash baskets according to Haudenosaunee worldview and customs.

Elijah is a community member of Ahkwesahsne, is Mohawk Nation, and is of the wolf clan. She brings a wealth of knowledge to Brock from her lived experiences as a traditional person from Ahkwesahsne and will speak to the procedure of making black ash baskets and the Indigenous knowledge surrounding black ash baskets, which are made from the growth rings of the black ash tree.

The event is hosted by Brock Faculty of Education lecturer Stanley ‘Bobby’ Henry and will take place on the Lifesize streaming platform from 10 a.m. to noon.

A link to the Lifesize stream can be accessed here.
