Woven Bulrush Mat
The Mi'kmaq were skilled weavers. Many of the Mi'kmaqs' weaving patterns were very intricate. They wove mats from the leaves of bulrushes, which they used for the walls of their summer homes, as mats on the floors and to cushion the bottom of their canoes.
Bulrushes are found in wet ditches and marshes all over Canada. If you don't have bulrushes growing nearby or don't have permission to cut some, then you can try this craft using construction paper.
