Maori demonstrations this week in W.S.


   The Museum At Warm Springs is the final Northwest venue for the first major international touring exhibition to celebrate Maori weaving, "Toi Maori: The Eternal Thread."
   In addition to being a visually stunning exhibition, Toi Maori: The Eternal Thread demonstrates the spiritual significance of weaving within the Maori culture of Aotearoa (New Zealand).
   Maori weavers, as well as a storyteller and a traditional musician will demonstrate their arts at the Museum daily from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. On June 21, 22, and 23.
   The Museum At Warm Springs was chosen to be the destination for this inspiring, highly desired exhibition and arts demonstrations, because Maori artists feel a special kinship with Native American artists of the Northwest.
   The Museum At Warm Springs is located at 2189 Highway 26 on the Warm Springs Reservation. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Daily. Admission is $6 adults, $5 seniors and students, $3 children. F or further information call 553-3331.
