Beading Against the Stigma: Native Culture as Prevention
Colonization has devastated Native communities resulting in poverty-stricken communities plagued with high incarceration and suicide rates. However, Native communities are actively combating these issues with culture. As a member of the Mvskoke Nation Youth Council, Iesha Phillips has been able to immerse herself in her culture and traditions. She even had the opportunity to teach some of these activities as the princess and goodwill ambassador of her tribe. Come bead coil bracelets and/or chokers with Iesha Phillips as she discusses how she got involved in her culture and how it changed her life for the better. Questions are encouraged! This workshop will be led by Iesha Phillips who is Black and Mvskoke. She is a 3rd year from Tulsa, OK where she resides in the Mvskoke reservation
