In the Classroom – Cherokee Weaving

This Fall, Kerstin Davis worked with Mr. Grindstaff’s class at Burnsville Elementary. Students were studying Cherokee Indians and had recently visited a Cherokee village. Kerstin talked to the students about Cherokee craft traditions – basketweaving, pottery, woven belts and blankets. She then read Trail of Tears to the class while they did simple weaving on stick looms.
