Victim Services keep moccasin-making tradition alive
Victim Services hosted a moccasin making traditional arts and craft activity held on Monday, November 13, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. at the Head Start building. Victim Services purchased the supplies needed, as parents hand-crafted moccasin’s from scraps of single piece soft-tanned leather, a needle and thick thread. As they began the art of making soft sole traditional moccasins for their children, they were assembled inside out to hide the stitching in the finished footwear. The kids loved their new moccasins, just in time for the winter. Victim Services would like to thank all the parents who came out to participate in making moccasins.
