The M¨¦tis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Northern Lights M¨¦tis Council hosted a Aboriginal Mitts Workshop on December 10, 2015, at their office in Cochrane.
MNO citizen Jackie Courville facilitated the workshop with the assistance of MNO-Timmins staff member Richard Aubin. This was Courville¡¯s first time hosting a crafting workshop at the MNO Northern Lights M¨¦tis Council office.
¡°She did very well,¡± Aubin shared in an e-mail. ¡°What I love the most is seeing someone learning a skill our ancestors practiced and passing it on to others.¡±
While this workshop focused on creating a pair of warm mitts, Courville hopes to host other workshops to make moccasins, mukluks and M¨¦tis beadwork.
