Native Maker Workshops

Native Maker Workshops

Making is an integral part of our Tribe’s life, as well as the Pathmakers Program. As a way to provide additional opportunities for Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) to exist within the space of Western classrooms, Pathmakers invites Native Makers within the community to share their skill, knowledge, and stories with NOHUM’s Native American students. Intergenerational learning is an important way of learning and during non-Covid times, we encourage families to participate. If you are a Native Maker and think you would be interested in working with Pathmakers to host a Maker Workshop with your skill or would like any additional information, please contact our Community Coordinator, Marlee Chavez, mchavez@bluelakerancheria-nsn.gov | 360-771-9808

BEADING CLASS

Beading classes are offered weekly during the school year for students attending Arcata and McKinleyville High Schools. While participating students lean beading basics, they also spend time learning about each other and different Tribal Nations.
