I went to the Burke Museum in Seattle to see the Here and Now exhibit . Its focus is on how today’s artists learn from past generations. For Native people there often are gaps in knowledge being pass down so they rely on photos or deconstructing weaving to learn how it was done. It was quite inspiring to see how they brought to life the past into today’s issues. I thought of what we have learned in the Legends programs and the possibilities with using the ANWG grant for mentoring. We are fortunate to have so many around us in the guild who are willing to share.
