She writes:

Finished! What's cool about this mural is that the hand, top left, color scheme, and concept are really all that I designed. The rest was everyone else. Left wall was almost entirely coordinated by my team on their own (Laurel Saunders helped bring the ricing scene to life, Michelle Defoe designed the florals and took some initiative on the design, Heather Olson and Aurora Webster each brought to life a window on their own), all the dragonflies were originally designed by kids, the fish were based on kids work as well (Neighborhood Youth Services and Steve O'Neill Apartments), and the top right is a floral by Daniell LaPorte.   Miigwech to Arrowhead Regional Arts CouncilSaint Paul & Minnesota FoundationMcKnight Foundation and American Indian Community Housing Organization for supporting this project, and Lincoln Park Resource Center/Hostel/Charles Obije for allowing us to paint their building!
If you're interested in the idea of community art, Springboard for the Arts has a free, downloadable toolkitfor folks who might want to get something going on their own.

Tomorrow, AICHO presents a "Medicine Bundle/Pouch and Apaakozigan" Session with Herb Fineday. This free session will start at 6:30 pm on Thursday via Zoom. It’s an experiential session on how to make a medicine bundle/pouch and traditional tobacco. If you want to make your own pouch, you will need enough leather or buckskin to make a pouch that will measure approximately an 8 inch square and a leather string of about 30inches. You will also need a few cut twigs of red willow for the apaakozigan. You can also watch and not participate as well. This session will be fun for youth too!

Registration could be closed now; email Ivy at ivyv@aicho.org with "Medicine Bundle Session" in the subject line for more information.
