A Peek into the American Indian Way of Life through their History and Oral Traditions

Happy Native American Heritage Month! This presentation will invite you into the world of the American Indian to discover what it once was to be Native, and what it means to be Native now.

She will discuss Native encampment life and will drum and sing an Ojibwa lullaby. A traditional recipe hand out will be available, and there will be a Q&A at the end of the presentation. Open to all ages. Registration is required to participate. Call 815-943-4671
