Learning about Coast Salish Weaving

Students have been learning about some of the many ways the Coast Salish Peoples use the Western Red Cedar tree. We learned how the bark is removed from the tree and can be used for weaving. Students wove their own ‘cedar’ mat which we hung on our representative Western Red Cedar tree. (We used raffia and hung it on our Emerald Cedar tree.)
