The event, which highlighted and celebrated the art of Ravenstail Weaving, was broadcast live on KTOO 360TV and streamed live on KTOO.org and LilyHope.com. You can also watch the 90-minute video on You Tube.

  • LilyHope.com presents numerous opportunities for the public to learn, witness, and interact with Yéil Koowú. Hope has been mentoring and working with 20+ weavers from across the country to create the largest known collection of child size Ravenstail robes.
  • The culmination of these weavers’ work came together in Juneau on April 30 at a multi-media presentation and gathering of the robes.

These robes will be on display at the Juneau-Douglas City museum for the 2024 summer exhibition. All are invited to learn, honor, and carry the knowledge into the future.
