Join us at the museum on Friday, Feb. 23, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for a 1-day round bag weaving workshop with Jacy SoHappy, Traditional Arts Manager at Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts. Jacy will lead up to 12 participants in the creation of miniature woven baskets using hemp twine and yarn. Different techniques will be demonstrated, and patterns will be available to use. The workshop is free, with registration required. Six of the 12 spots will be reserved for WSU students. Lunch will be provided courtesy of the Common Reading Program. Another workshop for 12 participants will be held on Saturday, Feb. 24.

About the instructor | Jacy SoHappy, Taamamno Ilp Ilp (Red Hummingbird), is an enrolled member of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation and was born and raised in the Mission/Pendleton area. She descends from the Cayuse, Nez Perce, and Yakama Tribes. She grew up in the tribal longhouse, traveling Indian country on the pow wow trail and medicine dances, learning how to preserve Native cultural identity and teachings from her grandmother, Loretta “Lonnie” Alexander (Pinkham). SoHappy has followed in her grandmother’s footsteps as a gatherer, seamstress, and painter. These teachings have seeped into her artwork, expressing her dedication to preserving Native culture and identity for the future of our children. Jacy looks forward to working with all of you. One heart. One mind.
