Did you know that snow snake, a traditional Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) winter game, is still played today in many Northern Native American communities? This game involves a stick that is carved and decorated to resemble a snake. Competitors throw the stick along a snow trench and try to see how far they can throw it. Now you have a chance to make your own snow snake. Join IAIS educator and wood crafter Susan Scherf for a workshop of whittling good fun. We will provide the materials and some wood burning kits. Participants are welcome to bring a whittling knife, if they have one, although it is not required. If weather permits, join in a friendly competition following the workshop.
Space per session is limited and pre-registration is required. Questions? Please call (860) 868-0518 or email [email protected]. Price of participation, including materials: $20 for Non-Members, $10 for Members.
