“Áísínai’pi” means to write on stone. Rock painting provides exceptional testimony to the living cultural traditions of the Blackfoot People. You and your family are invited to learn through traditional rock painting as you hear stories, humour and traditional teachings from an Elder and community leaders. A local children’s author will share a reading from their book and discuss how Indigenous languages strengthen cultural and traditional practices. Rock painting supplies will be made available or create your own and join us!
To participate in this hands-on learning, please take time to gather the following:
Go for a walk and find a rock that you wish to paint. River rocks work very well.
Gather acrylic paints in the colours that you wish, paint brushes and a cup for water to cleanse your brush as you paint. Dollar stores and crafting places have many choices.
Put down newspaper or scrap paper on your table for any spillage.
Use a plastic tray, plate or pie tin to put your paints on.
Be ready to learn, listen, and to create your own rock painting!
