Our Town Rewind: Native America

Harbor History Museum invites you for an encore presentation of one of our popular educational programs, Our Town: Native America with DeAnn Jacobson on October 15th from 1:00-2:00pm.

DeAnn Jacobson is a 5th generation great granddaughter of Chief Seattle and 4th generation great granddaughter of his daughter Princess Angeline. She is of Suquamish and Duwamish descent and is a enrolled member of the Duwamish Tribe in West Seattle. She was born and raised in the Puget Sound region and loves the rich diversity of the native culture of the region. DeAnn began learning the art of weaving cedar and other local materials, apprenticing under her second cousin, master basket weaver, Mary Lou Slaughter.

DeAnn has collaborated with the Burke Museum, Museum of History and Industry, Duwamish Tribe, and Indian Education program in the Central Kitsap School District. She has also had the opportunity to share and learn weaving skills cross-culturally to orphaned children through Children of the Nations in Uganda, Africa. 

This talk is FREE and open to the public, but space is limited. To reserve your seat, please contact Elizabeth Langford, Education Coordinator, at elizabeth@harborhistorymuseum.org or 253-858-6722 ext. 6.
