Today when the group went to the museum we met with elder Lori Sisquoc and she taught us how to make baskets just as our ancestors did. I thought this was really cool because I have never done anythingDaniel3 like this before. After learning, people might show their relatives to do this too. Today was overall better than the first. We also watched a short videos of films of how native americans are portrayed as, and it had me a little mad because how they were being depicted as ruthless and savage people looking for trouble and I know that wasn’t the case. I think to counter the stereotypes we should hear from elders on their perspective. For the Pamela Peters talk, I liked how she was trying to get the voices of the “forgotten people” out there.
