Michif Moss Bag Projects

  • Mount Royal University: Main Street 4825 Mount Royal Gate Southwest Calgary, AB, T3E 6K6 Canada (map)

Heirloom moss bags are intended to be a cherished gift for families with new little ones.  They create the feel of the mother's body for a new born while they sleep. A Métis artisan, Jessie Fiddler-Kiss has run her moss bag project for years as a way to offer scholarships for Indigenous mothers pursuing post-secondary education. 

She will also share her knowledge of Michif beadwork and embroidery as a means personalize heirloom projects, demonstrating caring and growth during this era of reconciliation. Over the course of the session, eight moss bags will be created by the community to donate to new moms in the community. 

General Admission: $35      |     Youth: $10
