David Moses Bridges, Passamaquoddy from Sipayik, is an award winning birchbark artist that has received national recognition for his work.  From full-size birchbark canoes to small etched containers, David is a master of his craft and creates both traditional and contemporary pieces.  David will demonstrate his knowledge of a traditional art form that has already been lost to many members of the Wabanaki tribes.  From splitting spruce root to cutting and etching birchbark, David will demonstrate his craft, share stories of his childhood and career as an artist, and answer questions about this rare art form.
