Open beading gathering

Bead N’ Bitch is an in-person gathering hosted by artist Dayna Danger.

This event will bring folks together to use our hands and mouths to bitch about issues and practices with the community in a “kitchen-table talk” style gathering.

“Métis Kitchen Table Talks” were started by Cathy Mattes and Sherry Farrell Racette, two influential and prolific Métis scholars, and knowledge keepers.

The concept is simple, to gather around tables, usually ones large and round, beading, eating, crafting, sharing, laughing, exchanging stories, passing along secrets, smoking, and crying together.

Many Métis people were raised this way and have fond memories of their mothers, grandmothers, fathers, aunties, and uncles passing on knowledge in the heart of the home, the kitchen.

This will be a space to talk, a space to listen, a space to relax.

Please bring your projects, ideas, and knowledge for tips and tricks. Beads, materials, music, and treats will be provided.


Space is limited!
To reserve a spot, please email: [email protected]

This gathering is reserved for Indigenous folks.

Danger’s Bead N’ Bitch will coincide with the imagineNATIVE’s Métis Kitchen Table Talk with Jason Baerg and Jessica Lea Fleming, who will be joined by advisors Cathy Mattes and Sherry Farrell Racette. Happening on Friday, October 22, 4-5 PM through an imagineNATIVE’s webinar and broadcast into the gallery.


Bead N’ Bitch with Dayna Danger is presented in conjunction with the exhibition STTLMNT IS NOT HERE, produced in collaboration with STTLMNT and imagineNATIVE; with curatorial support by STTLMNT Producer Ginger Dunnill and concept artist Cannupa Hanska Luger
