Kennedy will describe traditional Tsimshian weaving – the style of weaving, materials used, and how language was used to “teach” this style of weaving. She will also detail how the Metlakatla weaving style was heavily influenced by neighboring tribes and how it has changed slightly over time. The talk will highlight weaving in the 1980s and 1990s, when Lillian Buchert, Lucy Rainmen, and Brenda White were known for Tsimshian weaving. At that time, Violet Booth taught many students at Annette Island School District, though only a handful of students became weavers in their adult lives.
