Woven squares by Chloe French, left, and Kathryn Rousso are part of the Giving Strength Robe project on Friday, Feb. 15, 2019. Juneau weaver Lily Hope is organizing dozens of Chilkat and Ravenstail weavers from all over North America to weave 5-inch-by-5-inch squares that will be combined to make one traditional indigenous robe. Once completed, the robe will be given to Aiding Women in Abuse and Rape Emergencies (AWARE). (Michael Penn | Juneau Empire)
