he Cradleboard Project

The Cradleboard Project is a community project initiated and conceived by Lara Kramer in collaboration with visual and traditional artists Ida Baptiste and the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal. Grounded in a traditional art practice, this community project creates an exchange for Indigenous women to explore techniques, skills, language and artistic expressions in crafting their own cradleboard. The Cradleboard Project’s trajectory is to support the process of creation as a community of Indigenous women reclaiming a lost practice.
