Cultural Arts: Adornment
Investigate the Dene adornment practices of quilling and beadwork with grades 6-12. Close look at examples of quilling and beadwork from the Anchorage Museum collection, learn from Indigenous knowledge holders through videos and classroom visits, and create culturally appropriate art inspired by Alaska Native quilling and beadwork.
We would like to express our gratitude to Aaron Leggett, John Hagen, and Emma Hildebrand for sharing their time and knowledge to refine this curriculum unit. Thank you for your guidance and support.
