Traditional Crafts

$2,060 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 68 people in 4 months
Nikolai, a small community on at the Top of the Kuskokwim has 14 school aged children, 16 if you count the babies. 
I work here as the Tribal Family Youth Specialist at the Village Council .  My job allows me to work alongside children and their families. I would like to do some traditional sewing and crafts with the kids. My first goal would be to have all the children make Kuspuks, then beaver fur hats. 
 I set the goal in the hopes we can hire someone to show us how to sew a kuspuk, we need funds to cover intructors and some supplies (some here) and the Beaver hats would roughly be 400-500 per person to make (fur, hide and instruction)  plus the cost for items to be shipped to use. 
Please help our little community show our children our traditional way by reaching our goal. I included both of the class costs into the GoFundMe! thank you all for your time and consideration! if you have any questions for me, please email me at nevc.tfys@outlook.com

Thank you all! We have been able to start the kuspuk making. Through there’s been some trial and error with the sewing machines, we have started sewing together a few already!
Will post more pictures in a few days!
