Please join us on Saturday April 21, 2018 to enjoy a demonstration with artist Jeremy Johns from 11am to 1pm and 1pm to 3pm.
Jeremy Johns (Tohono O’odham and Akimel O’odham) is from the Ak-Chin Indian Community where he was raised and currently resides. He works for Ak-Chin Him-Dak Eco Museum and teaches O’odham language online with Tohono O’odham Community College. He is also enrolled in the Master’s Degree program in American Indian Studies at Arizona State University. Two years ago, he began to learn the traditional art of basket making and feels fortunate to have elder weavers in his community to guide him in producing O’odham basketry. He has done a little work in pottery and is eager to learn more.
