Over six weeks this summer, Marilyn Francis, a Mi'kmaq Elder from Acadia First Nations in Yarmouth, will present a program at  the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Yarmouth focused on traditions and crafts of her native culture. Participants can expect to learn about Sacred Teachings such as the importance of the drum, dreamcatcher and Talking Circle in Mi'kmaw culture, along with how to make simple crafts representing those teachings. The program will culminate with a Smudge, Feast (pot luck) and Sharing Circle.

TThe dream catcher originates from the Anishinaabe First Nation. It is said the first light of the sun destroys all the bad dreams and keeps the good ones for the dreamer.
