First Peoples celebrated at museum

Children can foster a finer appreciation of the First Peoples in B.C. by making their own totem pole, drawing animal symbols and even using their teeth to make birch bark art.

Royal B.C. Museum's next Wonder Sunday event will celebrate many aspects of First Nation Life.

The showcase will also feature storytelling and demonstrations on drum- and moccasin-making. Find out what life was like in a pit house. The closing ceremonies will include dancing.

Pre-registration is not required. The event happens Feb. 26, from 1 to 3 p.m., and cost is included with museum admission or membership. Please visit www.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca for details.
