We’re in for a special evening. Melinda Black, an accomplished artist, raised on the Blackfoot Reserve, has graciously agreed to come and teach us about dreamcatchers – and then show us how to make them. Other than the ones the kids have brought home, and the bits and pieces I’ve learned from them, I don’t know much about them. But I do know that, for Melinda, they are inspirational, healing, and empowering. Those who’ve been lucky enough to work with her say that the experience is profound. I’m so excited!
Melinda also has an employment and training program for women fleeing domestic violence. Proceeds from this event will be going to her program. In addition, we’ll be collecting women and childrens’ clothing as well as non-perishable food items. If you would like to bring any along, we’d be very grateful.
If you haven’t come before, please consider attending this one. It’s good in so many ways. Good for you, good for the community, and good for other women who are struggling to get back on their feet.
Registration is simple. Just pop over to the right and click whichever button suits you best.
