September SEED: Hands on History – Presented by The Institute for American Indian Studies Museum and Research Center

Saturday, September 23, 2023 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Hands On History: A Day in the Life of a Native American Child  – Presented by The Institute for American Indian Studies Museum and Research Center

Sat. Sept. 23 at 2pm. Registration required.

Location: Community Room

This program is best for kids in K-3, but it is open to a slightly wider age group. Sign up each child separately that will be making their own pinch pot.

At least one adult guardian must stay in the room for this program.


What will we do? We will have multiple stations:

We will explore a day in the life a Native American child examining artifacts and listening to traditional Native American storytelling.

Then we will create our own clay pinch pots!

The first 30 families to register and who show up on the day of the program will receive a free copy of “Jingle Dancer” by Cynthia Leitich Smith to take home!

Jingle Dancer - Wandering Bull Native American Shop

Thank you to our community partner, the Institute for American Indian Studies Museum and Research Center.



What is a SEED program?
