David Moses Bridges, Passamaquoddy, is a renowned birch bark artist and educator.  David specializes in birch bark baskets and canoes, and etches the bark with beautiful double curve motifs, traditional to the Passamaquoddy, or with his own designs.  Children will make a medallion to take home, etched using David’s stencils, or with designs from their own creative minds.  David will also teach participants about the Passamaquoddy people and language through stories and legends.
