Closing the Circle
A Farewell to Making Beauty: Native Beadwork of North America
After the meeting, we will host a farewell gathering for the long-standing exhibit Making Beauty: Native Beadwork of North America. Don’t miss this final chance to experience the beauty of traditional and contemporary Native American bead work from across the Northwest Coast, Plateau, and Plains regions.
CCHS Board Member Becky Archibald notes,
Making Beauty: Native Beadwork of North America covers the trade routes of how beads came to be in America. Tribal Nations used beadwork in adornment with family colors, tribal affiliation, and the symbols that hold great meaning as well as some used as trade cash. It’s been an honor to bring this exhibit to the community to promote greater understanding. And with its closing it thereby brings the circle complete
