Cedar bark is sacred to our people. Donna Cranmer received the gift of working with
her hands continuing a family line of expert weavers of regalia and baskets. Donna
shares her experience as you craft your own cedar bracelet. As you experience
working with the cedar, Donna shares her knowledge of the significance of cedar in
'Namgis culture.
