November Family Night: Native American Culture: Oral Traditions, Music and Stories

Event Date: 
Nov 16 2017 - 6:00pm

Join us on November 16th at 6:00 p.m. when internationally-published award-winning Ojibwa author and speaker, Kim Sigafus McIver shares her knowledge of the Ojibwa culture. As a celebration of both Native American culture and Illinois’ statewide Family Reading Night, families will learn about Ojibwa traditions, clothing, language, stories, songs and more. Fascinating for young and old, Kim’s interactive presentation brings to life a rich culture that thrived long before the land was America.

Knowledgeable of her heritage and of the Ojibwa people in Illinois, Kim will share their history. Everyone will have the opportunity to learn Ojibwa words, a traditional song, and will also be invited to join Kim in a traditional drum circle. Kim will be happy to answer audience questions. Her books will be available for sale, at the conclusion of the program. This is a free family program, open to the public, and is made possible through funding from District 122 LaSalle Schools. The LaSalle Public Library is located at 305 Marquette, LaSalle. For more information, please call the ibrary at 815-223-2341
