Pokanoket leather workshop at Mt. Hope Farm’s Camp Wetu

Pokanoket Tribe members Blue Shell, Hawkswanee and Two Deers taught a group of children at Camp Wetu how to make a leather pouch, similar to what American Indians may have made. Camp Director Carolyn Westgate and her camp counselors gathered the children at the Education Center where materials for the workshop were laid out. After selecting their materials, the children worked for over an hour sewing with sineu to complete their pouches which they were able to take with them.
