October 12 Teresa Duryea Wong

Native American Indian Quilts: 150 Years of Sewing and Survival via Zoom

Join Teresa as she covers American Indian culture beginning in 1880 when Native lands were taken away, buffalo herds were decimated, forced relocations were happening all over North America and the educational system changed dramatically. American Indians spent the next few decades learning to adapt. As Western missionary women made their way into the lives of American Indian communities, they taught quiltmaking skills and provided fabric and supplies. American Indian women with adept needle skills adopted Western patchwork quilts and eventually made quilts that reflected their own cultural heritage. These quilts provide an outlet for both art and survival. For the Plains Indians in particular, the eight point Morning Star became a beloved and repeated pattern. Learn how the transference from sewing buffalo hides and other natural materials to quilting took place and see the beautiful quilts made in this period.
