Indigenous traditions with Chris Knapp ’97

Chris Knapp (Waynflete class of 1997) visited with students in the 2-3 program this week. Chris runs an educational organization in Temple, Maine, called Koviashuvik Local Living School. He taught students about indigenous traditions and skills, including pounding ash logs to make basket splints, collecting beechnuts from a beech tree outside Thomas House, and using birch bark and willow bark to make bracelets. Chris demonstrated making fire using a bow drill.
