Workshop for cultural enrichment features bead-work

MARQUETTE — Different cultures are all around us, and the Marquette Regional History Center has set out to promote appreciation with the help of NMU instructor, Leora Lancaster.

Lancaster learned how to create bead-work from natural elements from her grandmother and her program director. November 1st she will be teaching others, as well as how to form an appreciation for the culture.

“Decolonize by eating an indigenous diet, or decolonize by learning a language or really decolonize by first and foremost your mind and in this way we’re kind of decolonizing our clothing kind of like our identity by wearing these things and using our natural elements to work with,” said Lancaster.

The event will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Marquette Regional History Center. This unique event has limited space. Click HERE for more information.
