Cedar: The Tree of Life

In Cedar: The Tree of Life program at the Museum of Anthropology, Serena and her HCOS friends learned the importance of cedar tree among First Nations of the Northwest Coast.

The field trip included a silent, observational walk to observe cedar objects, a presentation to the process of collecting, splitting, and sawing cedar planks, and hands on activity to learn about different objects relating to cedar such as Bentwood Box and Canoe.

Serena was particular intrigued by the new knowledge that you could use the inner bark of cedar as diapers...
