About This Event

“We are all connected.” Weaving in stories with each added bead, the Grenfell Campus Wampum Belt has traveled the province of Newfoundland-Labrador since 2016. Kelly Anne Butler, in collaboration with Grenfell’s Indigenous Student Caucus, designed the project to engage Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities in experiential learning. Woven by many different hands, the belt connects its weavers to the stories, histories, and meanings represented through its images. The final eight inches of the 6-foot long belt will be completed by volunteers and visitors to this exhibit.* In collaboration with Kelly Anne Butler, Indigenous Education Specialist, Memorial University, this exhibit was co-curated by the Memorial University Folklore graduate students enrolled in Dr. Kelley Totten’s folklore and museums seminar. *Pending a safe re-opening of the gallery and following Covid-19 precautionary guidelines.
