Wa-Say Healing Centre held a one-day ‘Bead In’ on May 2, 2015 for Residential School Survivors and their descendants and relatives to bead vamps to honour the children who never returned home from Residential Schools.
Wa-Say Healing Centre participated as part of an invitation from Walking with Our Sisters to Residential School Survivors or their Descendants and Relatives for submissions of pairs of children’s or baby’s moccasin vamps.
Most participants were beginner beaders and needed to learn beading techniques.
As of January 2017, the vamps are currently in Mount Saint Vincent University, Halifax, Nova Scotia. Please feel free to check out the Exhibit travelling schedule at www.wwos.ca
