Come join us and learn about fingerweaving from Marilyn Isaacs, a member of the Tuscarora Nation in New York. Supplies will be available for participants to try their hands at fingerweaving.

Marilyn Isaacs is a Haudenosaunee (also known as Iroquois) weaver and member of the Tuscarora Bear Clan who lives on the Tuscarora Reservation in New York. She is self-taught in the old-style loom-less weaving technique popular in the 18th Century. Her specialty is making sashes, belts, and garters for people to wear with their traditional regalia. Her belts and sashes have earned awards and special recognition in various art shows throughout New York. Marilyn has hosted fingerweaving workshops and demonstrations for children and adults at the Seneca Art & Culture Center at Ganondagan, the Niagara Arts & Cultural Center, and the Iroquois Museum in New York. She also visits schools to introduce children to the art of fingerweaving.
