This family-friendly day features storytelling, games and activities inspired by Kaya’s people. Visitors may even win their very own Kaya doll. All activities are included with general museum admission and are enjoyable for boys and girls.  Doll not required.

Families can also meet Teresa Webb (Anishinaabe) and hear about Native American cultures through stories and songs, accompanied by flute, drum and rattle. Joining the celebration will be Miami artists Katrina Mitten (beadwork), Patria Smith (gourd art) and Dani Tippmann (Native plants), who will discuss the similarities and differences between the Nez Perce and Miami cultures.

 It all takes place from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 24,  at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art.

Hope to see you there!
