Dana Bridgeman Cross and Blaire Cross shared big smiles as they crafted their birchbark baskets during a workshop last Wednesday at the Nanicost building here. More than 50 people crafted baskets under the direction of elders provided by the Seven Generations Education Institute. The event was put on in conjunction with the United Native Friendship Centre, Gizhewaadiziwin Health Access Centre, and Couchiching Youth and Elders.
