In this 90-minute program, students learn about the cedar tree and the variety of cultural belongings created from its trunk, bark and roots. A presentation of images and maps introduces the historical and ongoing importance of cedar trees to the First Nations of the Northwest Coast.
A tour through the galleries illustrates the depth of knowledge required to create cedar belongings such as bentwood boxes, baskets and canoes. The tour is followed by a hands-on classroom activity with students interacting with a range of belongings and tools, learning directly from handling, looking and listening.
