Native Women’s Trail of Tears

Barn Quilt Trail

We thank the Longwood’s Barn Quilt Trail for the invitation to tell the story of First Nation women and families during the War of 1812. Drawing on traditional knowledge, quilters representing Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Lenape nations, have created 31 beautiful quilt block designs to capture the spirit, courage and resilience of women facing incredible dangers and uncertain futures at the turn of the 19th century. See the designs copied to large 8 x8 wooden panels.
