Honesty          Love          Respect         Humility          Truth          Wisdom          Courage

Button Blanket Project with Grade 6/7s


Traditional to Northwest Coastal First Nations, Button Blankets are robes worn for special celebrations. Historically they were worn by chiefs and their families or bestowed upon someone for a deserved honour during a potlatch or special ceremony. Crests displayed in the center of the Button Blanket represented the clan of the wearer. For educational purposes, students had permission to choose a crest that best represented them. Students read about the significance of their chosen crest symbol.
