After a bit of a hiatus, we’re back with *live* and *in-person* events! We have just the thing for you on September 13, at 1:00p at the Okemos Library. Celebrate the First Nations peoples with Patricia Shackleton, a member of the Sault Ste Marie Tribe of the Chippewa (Ojibwe) will be our speaker at this light lunch.
Patricia will guide us on a tour of the Native Peoples’ history and how the effects of that history resonate in today’s world. She will also touch on the modern version of traditional birch bark cutwork and talk about the craft of Native American storytelling.
