Rain Williams, originally of Walpole Island and now living at Saugeen First Nation, is demonstrating the art of beading at Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre during the summer program.

"I learned how to bead from my mother who learned from her mother," says Williams.  "We are all dancers and create our own regalia,"  Her exquisitely beaded regalia worn in the dances at Pow Wow(s) throughout the region are carefully guarded designs that she creates.

Cousins, Lily and Natalie Root of Saugeen, are each also learning the art of beading and have taken part in the traditional dancing during summer Pow Wow since they were babies.
