This Friday there is a Porcupine Quill Embroidery session at the Art Centre with Mi'kmaq artisan Sheila Porter. You'll create a star-like design using hand-picked porcupine quills which are then embroidered onto a selected piece of deer hide using the four traditional Mi'kmaq colours.

Q.  Can you give me some information about hippo racing in Canada (USA)
A.   A-fri-ca is the big triangle shaped continent south of Europe. Ca -na-da is that big country to the north of the US. Oh, forget it. Sure, the hippo racing is every Tuesday night in Calgary.
Come naked.
