Traditional coat-making

making capotes


Myra Mainville, left, got tips from Jane Trivers during the second session of a two-part capote (blanket coat) making workshop this past Saturday at the Seven Generations Education Institute (Nanicost building). The workshop was led by Trivers and Caren Fagerdahl, and was the third in a local series of “Indigenous Arts Workshops Supported by the Rainy River District Community.” The workshop was sponsored by New Gold and TD Canada Trust. Plans are underway for a new workshop in April.
