The Mitchell Museum of the American Indian is expanding its
craft program to include all day DIY crafts during regular business hours
the week of August 18-21 to fill the void between camps and the start of the
school year. Activities are free with regular admission.
Kids can make simple versions of traditional Native American items including
Zuni Fetish Bracelets, God’s Eyes, Plains Shields and more. Each craft
includes background information about the importance of the artifact to
Native American ways of life.
Kid’s craft activities are recommended for children ages 5 and up, but there
is no minimum age requirement. Participants must be accompanied by an adult.
No pre-registration is necessary.
