When: Thu., Sept. 7, 7-8:30 p.m. 2017

Join us to hear Clint McKay reflect on his early memories of learning basket-weaving traditions, native plants, and other wisdom from his elders in the Sebastopol Laguna area. Through stories and personal experiences Clint McKay will reflect on the gifts, spiritual lessons, and weaving traditions he learned from weavers like Mabel McKay, Laura Somersal, and other Pomo and Wappo elders. Today, Clint and Lucy McKay gather plants and regularly sit and weave with family members in order to pass basket weaving traditions on to their children and grandchildren. Their native languages are spoken in their home on a daily basis.
