Join Illinois Road Scholar Kim Sigafus as she invites 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. An Ojibwa, 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. A traditional recipe hand out will be available, and there will be a Q&A at the end of the presentation.

It is co-sponsored in November by the DeKalb County History Center, Ellwood House, and NIU’s Pick Museum of Anthropology.
