February 23rd & 24th Snowshoe Making Plenty Canada is having another special event taking place on Saturday and Sunday, February 9th-10th, 2019! Jim Richmond and Chuck Commanda are both Algonquin craftsmen who will be making the traditional Algonquin snowshoes and hosting these events on both Saturday and Sunday from 9am until 3pm. This event will coincide with the Traditional Beading and Moccasin Making workshops, and all those participants are also welcome to take part this additional event. This is a free community event, so no registration is necessary. Donations are welcome. Jim and Chuck will be making two pairs of snowshoes. Before the event takes place, they will bend the wood for the outer base, bind the ends, and insert the crosspieces. During the event, participants will have the opportunity to knit the babiish (deer hide strips) on the snowshoes. Below is an example of the traditional Algonquin snowshoes we will be creating and the Algonquin words associated with the snowshoes' (aagimag) parts. http://www.hilaroad.com/camp/nation/speak.html
