In commemoration of American Indian Heritage Month an interactive program for kids will take place at the Jordaan Memorial Library from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 21. “Plains Indian Art” will be presented by the staff of Fort Larned National Historic Site in partnership with the library. Your child will learn about how the Indians communicated through signs, symbols, and pictographs. The program includes a buffalo game, stories, and an “art journey” done by painting symbols on genuine bison hide. There will be several take-home items for each participant. This program is for ages 5 and up - older participants can assist the younger ones. The paint used for this program is non-toxic and washable. Reservations can be made at the Jordaan Public Library by calling 285-2876. Space is limited. The program is at the library and not at the fort.
