A Peek Into The American Indian Way of Life: In Celebration of Indigenous Peoples Day @ Nature at the Confluence
Oct 13 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

A Peek Into The American Indian Way of Life: In Celebration of Indigenous Peoples Day

Kim Sigafus, an Ojibwa author and speaker, will invite people into the world of the American Indian to discover what it once was to be Native, and what it means to be Native now.  Kim will be dressed in her traditional Native regalia, and will present on Native culture through oral traditions, language, and history. She will discuss Native encampment life and will drum and sing an Ojibwa lullaby. Kim’s family is from White Earth Reservation in Minnesota and her Ojibwa name, Bekaadiziikwe, means “Quiet Woman.” Kim is an Illinois Humanities Road Scholar and this program is supported by the Illinois Humanities Road Scholar program.

This is a free program for all ages.
