Join us today as we celebrate Native Americans Day!
South Dakota celebrates Native Americans Day, or Indigenous Peoples Day on Monday, October 9th, 2017. South Dakota is one of four states that celebrates Indigenous People Day, instead of Columbus Day.
We are honoring the day by craft activities from 9am-4pm and a special storytime at 10am. Below is the scoop on our happenings today!
Coloring station available.
Although we are creating our example dream catcher craft from paper plates, faux feathers and yarn, they were traditionally made with materials from the circle of life and materials of importance.
We have a few examples of dream catchers displayed for inspiration!
We will also be creating and decorating teepees with paper bags. Teepees were normally only decorated to display important battles, visions and animal signs.
Story time was "Thunderboy Jr." by Sherman Alexie. A story of a boy who is frustrated that he is named after his father, because he wants his own name that represents him.
We will be celebrating Native American's Day until we close at 4pm today! Stop by and join the fun!
