Cornhusk Mat Making

February 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until February 26, 2020

Originally, Cornhusk Mats were placed at the doorway of longhouses with the braided side down, and the loose husk up for everyone to walk across before they entered. Corn, already important to our people, held special significance to clean off any negativity from anyone entering the longhouse. To this day, many people still lay these mats at the doorways of their homes to keep the energy good that’s coming in.

Teaching Lodge, CWC
Seats limited to 10 participants… spot not secured until $20 non-refundable registration is paid. OPEN TO ADULTS 18+… Snacks will be provided…
